Four Seacoast area state senators want New Hampshire to join the lawsuit filed by 16 other states challenging President Donald Trump’s emergency declaration on border wall construction, citing the potential loss of $224 million in funding for the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard.

The letter from Democratic senators Martha Fuller Clark of Portsmouth, David Watters of Dover, Jon Morgan of Brentwood and Tom Sherman of Rye was delivered to Sununu on Monday.

Senate Majority Leader Dan Feltes of Concord also signed the letter to the governor, claiming that the emergency declaration is especially problematic for New Hampshire.
