Real ID hubs not yet defunded for 2011

BTC -  In a legislative recalculation, a proposal to retroactively defund appropriations for the Real ID hubs did not pass as previously anticipated, according to Jim Harper at the Cato Institute.

The defunding proposal was expected to pass as part of an annual budget bill drafted by Democrats before the 112th session commenced.  In an effort to fight overall budget expenditures, Republicans worked instead to pass a temporary spending measure over a year long budget.

Congress is expected to resume discussion of the annual budget in March.
