Buying materials in advance for the construction of the next two new U.S. Navy aircraft carriers starting in 2016 will save taxpayers $500 million over the course of their construction and will keep the industrial base strong.

A new poster with carrier facts and historical information is available for download to celebrate National U.S. Navy Aircraft Carrier Month!
Please join us on Tuesday, March 21 and Wednesday, March 22, 2017, in Washington, DC for ACIBC Action Days.
ACIBC is a proud supporter of “National U.S. Navy Aircraft Carrier Month.” Ask your Member of Congress to support “National U.S. Navy Aircraft Carrier Month” by Co-Sponsoring H.RES.776.
