Still no sunlight

President Obama is still not observing his “sunlight before signing” pledge:

Sunlight Before Signing: Too often bills are rushed through Congress and to the president before the public has the opportunity to review them. As president, Obama will 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.

According to the CATO Institute’s tally, President Obama has kept this promise on just one of eleven bills he has signed.  (That one was the DTV Delay Act.)  Five of the eleven were never posted at all.
