Congress Gives USCIRF 9 More Months of Life

Earlier this week, Congress passed and sent to the President H.R. 5816 (full text), extending the life of the U.S. Commission for International Religious Freedom until Sept. 30, 2015.  The bill is retroactive to Dec. 10, the day before the Commission's current authorization expired. (See prior posting.) The White House website lists this, along with other bills awaiting the President's signature and provides an online opportunity for individuals to comment on the bill.
