The Davis bicentennial: slow going

Plans are creeping along for the Jeff Davis bicentennial. Notice this (emphasis added):
A bill to establish a commission "for the purpose of organizing and planning a celebration in recognition of Jefferson Davis' 200th birthday" easily passed the House, only to die in the Senate appropriations committee.
Don't think Rick Beard's "Civil War 150: The Sesquicentennial Initiative" made it that far. And unlike the Sesquicentennial, Jeff's at least got a webpage.

(Ted Savas noticed this story too.)
