The New York Times is reporting that President Barack Obama has "relaxed his criteria" for issuing presidential signing statements:
Mr. Obama has attached signing statements to 5 of the 42 bills he has signed, focusing on 19 specific provisions. He also challenged, without listing them, "numerous provisions" in a budget bill requiring officials to obtain permission from a Congressional committee before spending money. It contained dozens of such requirements.
