Description

  • Content Description: The Navy's proposed FY2007 budget requests $739 million in advance procurement funding for CVN-78, the lead ship in the Navy's proposed CVN-21 class of aircraft carriers. The budget also requests $45 million in advance procurement funding for CVN-79, the second ship in the class. The Navy wants to procure CVN-78 in FY2008 and CVN-79 in FY2012. The House and Senate versions of the FY2007 defense authorization bill (H.R. 5122/S. 2766) support procurement of CVN-78 and CVN-79 but differ on certain items relating to aircraft carrier acquisition.
