Curtis Bay Coast Guard Yard could get $21 million

The Coast Guard Yard at Curtis Bay is in line to receive $21 million to continue its ship repair mission in fiscal year 2014 under the Department of Homeland Security appropriations bill, Sen. Barbara Mikulski announced Monday.

The 113-acre yard on the Baltimore-Anne Arundel County line is the Coast Guard's only shipbuilding and repair facility and also provides all logistical support for Coast Guard vessels.

"The Coast Guard Yard at Curtis Bay employs more than 600 military and civilian personnel," said Mikulski in a statement. "They fix the ships that patrol our ports, install new tools in the cutters that chase drug smugglers and update our fleet for anti-terrorism efforts."

The bill now moves to the Senate floor; a vote has not been scheduled.
