Sen. Bill Nelson Visits Mayport Today

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Senator Bill Nelson is paying a visit to the First Coast today.

Sen. Nelson will discuss efforts to prepare Naval Station Mayport to house a nuclear carrier.

The Navy has said it wants to base a flattop at Mayport in order to strategically disperse its fleet of carriers.

Currently all its East Coast carriers are based in Virginia.

Mayport currently has the space needed for a carrier, but does not have the facilities necessary to conduct the specialized maintenance required for nuclear-powered vessels.
