KOMO Newsradio: Larsen Tours Polar Sea Icebreaker

SEATTLE—Rep. Rick Larsen, WA-02, toured the docked Polar Sea icebreaker in Seattle on Friday, October 10.

Listen to an interview he did with KOMO Newsradio following the tour.

Larsen has long called for the U.S. Coast Guard to reactivate the Polar Sea to ensure the U.S. has the resources it needs to protect U.S. interests in the Arctic and to create shipbuilding jobs in the Puget Sound region.

Larsen has led efforts in the House of Representatives to protect the country’s icebreaker fleet and to help the U.S. better prioritize its economic, strategic and environmental interests in the Arctic.
