US Senate reauthorizes religious freedom commission
Catholic World News - December 19, 2011
The United States Senate has voted to reauthorize the US Commission on International Religious Freedom, which documents violations of religious freedom around the world.
Despite broad bipartisan support, the commission’s existence had been threatened for months because a single lawmaker had prevented a reauthorization vote. Several media outlets have reported that the lawmaker was Sen. Richard Durbin, a Catholic from Illinois.
