The Trump administration has relaunched the White House petition website Saturday after shutting it down in December for revamping.

The site, Petitions.WhiteHouse.gov, allows users to create solicitations that will receive an official response from the administration if they receive 100,000 signatures, The Hill reports.

The responses would come only on petitions that meet the signature requirement "within 60 days," according to the report.

Several petitions critical of President Donald Trump remained unanswered on the site Saturday, including two demanding the release of his tax returns and one calling for his resignation.

In December, the White House told The Associated Press that it would begin responding to petitions after the relaunch.

The official said the revamp would save taxpayers $1.3 million annually.

The site was initially named "We the People" when the Obama administration introduced it in 2011.

"We will save taxpayers almost $3 million per year as a result of the redesigned site," a White House official told the Hill in December. "The president is focused on making smart use of taxpayer dollars and we thought that the previous site was, frankly, costing far too much."
