H.R. 2867 (112th): United States Commission on International Religious Freedom Reform and Reauthorization Act of 2011

To reauthorize the International Religious Freedom Act of 1998, and for other purposes.

The federal budget process occurs in two stages: appropriations, which set overall spending limits by agency or program, and authorizations, which direct how federal funds should (or should not) be used. Appropriation and authorization provisions are typically made for single fiscal years. A reauthorization bill like this one renews the authorizations of an expiring law.
