Presidential Signing Statements and Lawmaking Credit
KEVIN EVANS and BRYAN MARSHALL analyze “signing statements” from John F. Kennedy to George W. Bush and ﬁnd that presidents are more likely to give credit to members of Congress for legislative accomplishments when political conditions make bill passage difﬁcult. They show that presidents strategically share credit with key coalition members, party leaders, co-partisans, and senators in order to support their coalition and party-building needs in Congress.
