Statement on Signing the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal
Year 2006


January 6, 2006

Today, I have signed into law H.R. 1815, the ``National Defense
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2006.'' The Act authorizes funding for
the defense of the United States and its interests abroad, for military
construction, and for national security-related energy programs.
Several provisions of the Act, including sections 352, 360, 403,
562, 818, and 2822, call for executive branch officials to submit to the
Congress proposals for legislation, including budget proposals for
enactment of appropriations, or purport to regulate or require
disclosure of the manner in which the President formulates
recommendations to the Congress for legislation. The executive branch
shall implement these provisions in a manner consistent with the
President's constitutional authority to supervise the unitary executive
branch and to recommend for the consideration of the Congress such
measures as the President judges necessary and expedient. Also, the
executive branch shall construe section 1206(d) of the Act, which
purports to regulate formulation by executive branch officials of
proposed programs for the President to direct, in a manner consistent
with the President's constitutional authority to supervise the unitary
executive branch and to require the opinions of heads of executive
departments. In addition, the executive branch shall construe section
1513(d) of the Act, which purports to make consultation with specified
Members of Congress a precondition to the execution of the law, as
calling for but not mandating such consultation, as is consistent with
the Constitution's provisions concerning the separate powers of the
Congress to legislate and the President to execute the laws.
A number of provisions of the Act, including sections 905, 932,
1004, 1212, 1224, 1227, and 1304, call for the executive branch to
furnish information to the Congress on various subjects. The executive
branch shall construe such provisions in a manner consistent with the
President's constitutional authority to withhold information the
disclosure of which could impair foreign relations, national security,
the deliberative processes of the Executive, or the performance of the
Executive's constitutional duties.
Section 1222 of the Act refers to a joint explanatory statement of a
committee of conference on a bill as if the statement had the force of
law. The executive branch shall construe the provision in a manner
consistent with the bicameral passage and presentment requirements of
the Constitution for the making of a law.
The provisions in Title XIV in Division A of the Act are identical,
except for a punctuation change in section 1405(b)(1)(B) and revisions
in section 1406, to the corresponding provisions in Title X of Division
A of the Department of Defense, Emergency Supplemental Appropriations to
Address Hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico, and Pandemic Influenza Act,
2006 (H.R. 2863 of the 109th Congress) (Public Law 109-148). The
statement I issued upon signing H.R. 2863 into law on December 30, 2005,
is incorporated herein by reference insofar as that statement referred
to Title X of Division A of that Act.
George W. Bush
The White House,
January 6, 2006.

Note: H.R. 1815, approved January 6, was assigned Public Law No. 109-
163. This item was not received in time for publication in the
appropriate issue.

Funny how that one doesn't appear in the list (from the post on latest page).


I originally posted these here http://o.forums.go.com/abc/primetime/bostonlegal/messag... during a discussion on signing statements in general. You can see that it clearly came from the original link I posted in this thread, but it appears to have been removed now.

:wtf: !!

edited to add - that date doesn't even appear on their list for the year! This was in the week ending Jan 13, 2006, and they have no listing there at all for that date!
