Executive Orders

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. Executive orders are numbered sequentially for a calendar year and may address agency closings due to inclement weather, may call the legislature into special session, may address county or city officials who have violated their elected positions.
