Review the full list of the Obama Administrations Memorandum here.
Don't forget to keep an eye on the full list of President Obama's Executive Orders.
Why is the Presidential Memorandum so important and why is the 1461 tracking them?
In January of 2009 the Presidential Memorandum was given the same power as the Executive Order by the Department of Justice in a statement by U.S. Assistant Attorney General Randolph D. Moss.
In effect, it suddenly became the equal to the Executive Order with the same power.
