Ten random things: April 29

Ten bills signed into law during the first 100 days of Barack Obama's presidency:

  1. S. 181 - The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009
  2. S. 520 - A bill to designate the United States courthouse under construction at 327 South Church Street, Rockford, Illinois, as the "Stanley J. Roszkowski United States Courthouse"
  3. S. 383 - Special Inspector General for the Troubled Asset Relief Program Act of 2009
  4. H.R. 1512 - Federal Aviation Administration Extension Act of 2009
  5. H.R. 1541 - To provide for an additional temporary extension of programs under the Small Business Act and the Small Business Investment Act of 1958, and for other purposes.
  6. H.J. Res. 38 - Making further continuing appropriations for fiscal year 2009, and for other purposes
  7. H.R. 146 - Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009
  8. H.R. 2 - Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009
  9. H.R. 1105 - Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009
  10. H.R. 1388 - The Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act

President Obama has signed twelve bills into law during his first 100 days in office. (The other two were S. 352, the Digital TV Delay Act, and H.R. 1, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.) He also, per the CBS News Political Hotsheet, visited eleven states and nine foreign countries, flown 46 times on Marine One and 34 times on Air Force One, held 16 news conferences, and played golf once.

Incidentally, Stanley J. Roszkowski is a former Federal judge to the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. You probably already knew that, but I had to look it up.
