Wicker's call for ships could mean work for coast shipbuilders

Wicker says national security concerns overseas are the driving force behind the bill.

“We are serious about giving the Navy, the defense department, the chief of naval operations, the support that they need to achieve this ambitious step,” said Wicker.

Officials say it could take 20 to 25 years to build the 79 ships needed to reach Wicker's goal.
