Congress STILL diverting funds of USPTO in April 2011

from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on 17 April 2011:

Legislators siphoned the funds as part of the emergency spending bill drafted hastily to avert a shutdown of the government this month. The stopgap measure, which President Barack Obama signed into law Friday, cuts federal spending by $38 billion and quietly offset a fraction of that amount by draining more than $100 million in fee income from the patent office.

Does anyone believe "patent reform 2011" will end fee diversion?
