Scope and Content

These records are official copies of executive orders issued by the Governor. Executive orders afford a method for reacting to and preparing a plan of action for sudden problems or changing events which require the Governor's prompt attention. Their issuance provides an established conventional means of responding to these events. Through the executive order, the Governor also creates mechanisms to implement the regulations and establish organizations to perform activities of the government in some specific way. A limited number of declarations, mostly concerning recognition of disaster responses, are included with executive orders here.


Chronological by date

Occasionally different types of documents like declarations were filed in the back of the folder, these were moved to preserve chronological order. However, numbered executive orders were kept in numerical order even when the chronological order might be off by a few days.
