The delay on the DTV delay

In case you were wondering why Barack Obama has been so slow to sign into law the DTV transition delay bill, which he’s been so avidly in favor of, you can find the answer on the White House blog. President Obama has instituted a new policy in which the White House posts non-emergency legislation online for public review before he signs it.

According to the blog, Obama wants to give each bill five days of sunlight before he puts pen to paper. In the case of the DTV Delay Act of 2009, the Senate passed the final bill at the end of the day on Feb. 4. Assuming he gives a full five days, the President should be set to sign either tonight or tomorrow.
