Some of you have asked about former President George W Bush's Executive Orders. I am assembling the EO list for 43 now. You can view and download the Executive Orders from the first years of the George W Bush Administration here.

Executive Orders become law if unchallenged by the Congress 30 days after they are submitted.

The Listing of Executive orders in the Congressional Library runs in a numeric order starting with the first Executive orders passed until the most current. When President Barack Obama took office his EO list started from #EO-13489
