Quotes

"The $75 million seems like a high number, but when you compare it to a ship, it seems like a good deal" he said
Congressman Garamendi said, "I commend Transportation Secretary Foxx and Maritime Administrator Jaenichen for this job-creating, business generating, and environment improving action. Every dollar guaranteed by the Maritime Administration generates $10 of private sector funding. This cost-effective approach to help massive shipbuilding projects get off the ground is a win for American taxpayers, businesses, and workers. I am excited that the project will create solid middle-class jobs in California . By using LNG fuel, which has a lower carbon footprint than diesel, these vessels are also a significant step toward building a 'green' U S flag fleet and promoting environmentally sustainable commerce."
US Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said: "This is proof-positive that when we work to build America's green energy economy, we can directly support the creation of meaningful jobs, supporting the President's goal to strengthen America's middle class."
...the entire Keystone Shipping team, and all the many people who made this mission a success," concluded Keystone Shipping President Donald Kurz. "They accomplished something no one had ever tried: they destroyed, at sea, one of the world's largest stockpiles of chemical weapons. In doing so, they helped make the world a little safer, and we are all grateful for their service."
