House Minority Leader John Boehner is touting a proposal introduced by Rep. John Culberson, R-TX, requiring a three-day internet posting prior to votes on final passage for all legislation in the lower chamber.

The Boehner-Culberson initiative puts the House GOP officially on record in support of the Read the Bill movement that goes back at least to 2005 and probably even before that. The Sunlight Foundation established this web site seeking support for the proposal in 2008.

And as I recall, The Heritage Foundation's Ed Feulner began writing columns advocating a similar measure at least as far back as 2004.

When Nancy Pelosi was House Minority Leader, she criticized the then-GOP majority for not allowing members at least three days to read legislation before voting on it, and pledged that Democrats would have such a waiting period if they became the majority, as they did in 2006.

Unfortunately, the Pelosi-led House doesn't quite have an auspicious record of abiding by its three-day rule, as I noted in this column last year concerning House passage of Obamacare.
