McKeon says DoD report was skimpy and late

House Armed Services Committee Chairman Buck McKeon (R-Calif.) said a Defense Department report on China was skimpy and late.

He’s demanded DoD repeal limits on the length of its reports to Congress.

The Defense Department said its 10-page limit is a guideline not an absolute rule. Officials said they just want to give Congress something readable and useful.

The department sends lawmakers more than 500 reports a year.
