Heritage: Obama Breaks Transparency Promise Yet Again

Obama Breaks Transparency Promise Again

Before President Barack Obama took office he promised to:

not sign any non-emergency bill without giving the American public an opportunity to review and comment on the White House website for five days.

In just his first week in the White House, Obama broke this promise twice signing both Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, and Medicare expansion bill without posting the bill for five day comment.

Today, Obama will break his promise to the American people yet again, this time by signing the Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009. There is no way that anyone of these three bills could possibly be considered an emergency. All three are clear broken promises by the Obama Administration.

Worse, the Omnibus Land Bill could definitely use some more scrutiny. Especially the provision that would criminalize casual collecting of paleontological resources on federal land.
