ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of the U.S. Navy and Department of Defense not to submit a 30-year aviation plan as mandated by law. The plan is meant to serve as a strategic and resource-planning exercise for the Navy and Air Force. According to critics, failure to submit the plan leaves lawmakers to make decisions in a limbo.
