SEATTLE —

A new submarine is being officially named the USS Washington.

Gov. Jay Inslee and Navy Secretary Ray Mabus are leading Thursday's ceremony in Seattle.

Inslee's office says it's the first Navy vessel to carry the state's name since a World War II battleship.

The nuclear-powered submarine is 377 feet long and carries cruise missiles.
