This amendment would have allowed the Navy to retire nine of its dated Littoral Combat Ships (LCSs). The LCS has been plagued by problems since its conception in 2001, earning the nickname "little crappy ship." The program has faced cost overruns, delays, mechanical failures, and questions over the platforms' survivability in high-intensity combat. With each ship costing $500 million, LCSs continue to avert decommission. The amendment was rejected 208-221.
