Executive Orders Collection


Executive Orders are issued by the Governor. This is a comprehensive collection of Executive Orders and some related documents going back to Governor Curtis (1967) along with Executive Orders from the World War II period from 1942-1947. This has been compiled from our library's collection, which has been reconciled with the collection maintained by the Office of the Governor. Cross references to other Executive Orders, laws, proposed legislation, and reports in our collection are provided for the convenience of the user and are not necessarily comprehensive or authoritative. These references were researched by the Law and Legislative Reference Library. This collection may be expanded in the future with records from the State Archives.
