WASHINGTON (BP) - The United States' watchdog for worldwide religious liberty has taken steps for its closure if Congress does not extend its life by Dec. 16. The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) will cease to operate if Congress does not pass and President Obama does not sign into law no later than Dec. 16 legislation either reauthorizing it or continuing its funding. USCIRF is currently funded in a spending bill that expires on that date.
