Abstract:

The lead ship of the Seawolf class SSN-21 was authorized in the fiscal year 1989 budget, the second SSN-22 in fiscal year 1991, and the third SSN-23 in fiscal year 1992. In January 1992, President Bush announced his intent to cancel the Seawolf program and proposed rescinding funding for both the SSN-22 and SSN-23. The Congress, however, voted to retain the SSN-22 while rescinding the fiscal year 1992 funds for the SSN-23. In its place, the Congress provided an additional 540 A million to the Navy to support the submarine industrial base--funds the Navy has since applied to long-lead requirements for the third Seawolf class submarine.
