C-130Js still in Coast Guard plans despite funding snag
The Coast Guard still plans to field six new Lockheed Martin C-130J maritime patrol aircraft by the summer of 2006, despite the Bush Administration's decision not to release a supplemental appropriations package that included money to finish building the aircraft, a Coast Guard official said Aug. 16.
The Coast Guard believes it can secure the funding through another appropriations bill, given the strong congressional support the program has enjoyed, said Capt. Larry Hall, the Coast Guard's C-130J project manager.
