A total of $8.1 million is on its way to the Seacoast to support construction at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard.
The funding will be used to construct a new acoustic test and calibration facility.
According to Rep. Tom Allen, D-Maine, on Friday the final report for the Fiscal Year 2006 Military Quality of Life and Veterans Affairs Appropriations bill was completed and it included funding for the shipyard.
Acoustic test and calibration? I sure hope we aren't giving in to too much political pressure.
