Presidential Executive Orders . . . Coming and Going

When a new administration enters office, there is a flurry of activity relating to Executive Orders, documents issued by the president to direct and govern the activities of government officials and agencies.  The incoming president typically issues a number of new Orders, many of which expressly revoke some of those of the outgoing president.

You can access every newly issued Executive Order in the Federal Register, usually a day or two after signature by the president.  They will also appear at roughly the same time in the Compilation of Presidential Documents.

The media has been reporting extensively about many of these orders—existing and anticipated—and will continue to do so both before and after the January 20th inauguration. Why not read the actual documents themselves!
