Portsmouth Naval Shipyard Cutting Back

Kittery -The Portsmouth Naval Shipyard is cutting back in an effort to address an immediate budget shortfall.
Civilian hiring has been frozen and all temporary workers will be let go after their contracts expire. Next year operating support for the shipyard will be cut by 10 percent, and facilities maintenance cut in half. Lawmakers in Washington have failed to pass a military budget, so the shipyard is operating on the same amount of money it had last year.
