The bipartisan leadership of the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and the Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation sent this letter to Acting Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Chad Wolf expressing concern over DHS’ proposal to give Eastern Shipbuilding Group (ESG) extraordinary relief from its fixed price contract to construct the Coast Guard’s Offshore Patrol Cutter (OPC), stating their skepticism that “such truly extraordinary relief is justified given that this ‘crisis’ was foreseeable and mostly avoidable.”
