President Obama has signed 157 Executive Orders to date during his Administration. The 1461 has included a Free Download of the Official Executive Orders as they become available in the Federal Registry.
The list was originally started here on the 1461 on January 25 2009.
I get emails from time to time asking why other blogs and websites list President Obama's Executive Orders in the hundreds even thousands and I show only the true count of the current number of Executive Orders.
The answer is simple - We don't need to lie or embellish the total number of Executive Orders - the Truth will Set you Free. Read my open response to the emails questioning the Executive Order count here.
For ease of navigating the full list, the most recent orders are listed below here on the main page along with the rest of the Executive Orders. You can also view the list broken out by year by clicking on the following links: (Scroll down for the 2013 / 2012 Executive Orders)

Some of you have asked about former President George W Bush's Executive Orders. I am assembling the EO list for President George W Bush 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. They must also be published in the Federal Register.
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

Executive Order 13535 - Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act's Consistency with Longstanding Restrictions on the Use of Federal Funds for Abortion

Executive Order - Classified National Security Information
This order prescribes a uniform system for classifying, safeguarding, and declassifying national security information, including information relating to defense against transnational terrorism. Our democratic principles require that the American people be informed of the activities of their Government. Also, our Nation's progress depends on the free flow of information both within the Government and to the American people. Nevertheless, throughout our history, the national defense has required that certain information be maintained in confidence in order to protect our citizens, our democratic institutions, our homeland security, and our interactions with foreign nations. Protecting information critical to our Nation's security and demonstrating our commitment to open Government through accurate and accountable application of classification standards and routine, secure, and effective declassification are equally important priorities.
