Executive orders as issued by the Governor are not laws, but do have the same binding nature. Executive orders are usually based on existing constitutional or statutory powers of the Governor and do not require any action by the state legislature to take effect. They are used to detail the operations and organization of government, such as a Governor reorganizing government, or declaring administrative leave for the day after Thanksgiving.
Executive Orders may be searched by the title, name or a word, as well as by date filed. Please enter the date as YYYYMMDD. The date can be limited to the year only (YYYY), month and year (YYYYMM), or a specific date (YYYYMMDD).
