TITLE 44–PUBLIC PRINTING AND DOCUMENTS
CHAPTER 17–DISTRIBUTION AND SALE OF PUBLIC DOCUMENTS
Sec. 1713. Documents to be delivered to the Executive Mansion
The Public Printer shall deliver to the Executive Mansion two copies of each document, bill, and resolution as soon as printed and ready for distribution.
(Pub. L. 90-620, Oct. 22, 1968, 82 Stat. 1281.)
Historical and Revision Notes
Based on 44 U.S. Code, 1964 ed., Sec. 80 (Jan. 12, 1895, ch. 23, Sec. 88, 28 Stat. 622).
Executive Mansion is Fedspeak for the White House. I bring this part of Title 44 to your attention to show once again the detailed statutory directions given to the Government Printing Office. I also invite public speculation as why two copies are delivered. One for the President and the other for the Vice-President? Perhaps the President and the First Spouse might want to read the same document in bed and compare notes? I don’t have a serious idea myself and I’m not sure whom to ask!
