Abstract:

This report provides background information and potential oversight issues for Congress on the Gerald R. Ford CVN-78 class aircraft carrier program. The Navys proposed FY2016 budget requests a total of 2,633.1 million in procurement and advance procurement AP funding for CVN-78, CVN-79, and CVN-80, the first three ships in the program. Congresss decisions on the CVN-78 program could substantially affect Navy capabilities and funding requirements and the shipbuilding industrial base.
