    $20M allocation for ‘promoting democracy’ in Cuba will remain unchanged in 2011-12

    $20M allocation for 'promoting democracy' in Cuba will remain unchanged
    in 2011-12

    U.S. State Department spokesman P. J. Crowley told journalists on
    Tuesday that the budget unveiled Monday for the U.S. fiscal year that
    starts Oct. 1, 2011, included a $20-million (fot2) allocation for
    "promoting democracy'' in Cuba – the same level of funding as in the
    previous two fiscal years.

    The comment came in reply to a question about , a U.S.
    government subcontractor jailed in since late 2009 for delivering
    satellite communications equipment to Jewish groups. His work was paid
    out of the Cuba democracy programs.

    In another Cuba-related development, Rep. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), a
    longtime critic of Radio/TV Marti, has filed an amendment to a must-pass
    House spending bill that would eliminate all of the U.S. broadcaster's
    funding: $30 million.
