Executive Orders (EOs)

Executive Orders, or EOs, are orders by a seated President demanding a certain course of action be taken on an issue, law, or procedure.  Like laws, they have a binding effect on agencies that implement traditional laws and regulations.  Unlike laws, they are not voted on by Congress and can be suspended or revoked immediately by any seated President.

More detailed information about these Executive Orders, and any amendments, is available from the National Archives.
