Executive Order 13579 - Regulation and Independent Regulatory Agencies
Wise regulatory decisions depend on public participation and on careful analysis of the likely consequences of regulation.

Executive Order 13578 - Coordinating Policies on Automotive Communities and Workers
Section 1. Policy. Over the last decade, the United States has experienced a decline in employment in the automotive industry and among part suppliers. This decline accelerated dramatically from 2008 to 2009, with more than 400,000 jobs being lost in the industry. Now, 2 years later, the American automotive industry is beginning to recover. The automotive industry has, over the past 2 years, experienced its strongest period of job growth since the late 1990s. Exports have expanded, and the domestic automakers in 2010 gained market share for the first time since 1995. The automotive supply chain, which employs three times as many workers as the automakers, has also shown renewed strength. However, we still have a long way to go.June 15, 2011
