$400,000 for nothing

Page 200 of the FY 2014 Arizona JBLC Baseline Budget Book (Arizona Historical Society funding) contains the following:

The Baseline includes $410,500 and 1 FTE Position from the General Fund in FY 2014 for the Arizona Experience Museum. These amounts are unchanged from 2013.

This line item funds personnel and rent of the Arizona Experience Museum, previously called the Centennial Museum. The facility was previously the Arizona Mining and Mineral Museum on the Capitol Mall. The museum closed May 1, 2011 for renovations. The Arizona Historical Society does not currently have an estimated reopening date.

Why does the legislature continue funding the AHS for a nonexistent museum that has no plan and no schedule?
