July 11, 2011

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. Such decisions are informed and improved by allowing interested members of the public to have a meaningful opportunity to participate in rule making. To the extent permitted by law, such decisions should be made only after consideration of their costs and benefits (both quantitative and qualitative).
July 6, 2011

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.

    Well, I had actually hoped to see more things done to improve the conditions in America, but the only things I really see are: MORE big government and the president addressin more issues about other countries than what is going on here. I do not believe our president should proclaim to be a leader in the free world either, that is a joint effort with our allies. I did not see one committee to inspire the American people. I am very disappointed.

    Where are the 'Executive orders' signed into effect in 2012? We're near the end so why weren't these included?
    I am more than very disapppointed in the leadership all the way around...we need to do as you would to put in a new bathroom: completely gut out the 'room' and replace with new. The old stinks to high heaven and with that thot in mind, be praying with all your heart for this election coming up!! We'll surely need the Almighty's help for this one, with all the lies and deceit. I'm told that even the dead and pets voted in the last election. This time we have the: politically correct, illegal aliens, and foreigners thrown in for good measure. God help us.

  3. Rome wasn't built in a day and after forty years of the plastic credit cards and free lending and wars, and Government freebees...we need to spend money and remove all those crooked republicans from our system. Everyone has listened to Rush Limphead and Glenn Buck...for ratings they will do anything to pump the nation. Start looking things up and stop repeating what other have brainwashed you into saying. Look at the actual Executive Orders, look at who submitted certain Acts like the [[Liberman]] attempt to pass authority for Home Land Security's usage of "the farms" and plastic caskets. Those people who developed this Act have a 1% chance of passing it into law, and Glenn the liar takes this and throws on a whopper that Obama's Administration is out to get you...or the bologne about his muslim faith, or the stupidity of some spreading (out of legal bounds) that Obama was not a citizen, oh boy let the Donald Trump's of the world lead this nation. You keep eleiving the lies and I will keep believing in our current President. Obama and Biden will win by a land slide against that moron Romney.

    Can you put the Ex orders in a time line format so we can see it visually. Please detail out the scope, origination and purpose or need for the Ex order. The cost my help also. Also where can a person input and lobby for an Ex-order. What is the road of an Ex-order. from beginning to signing into law. Can you make it so a 6 grader can understand it. I'm not so proud where a few miss-spell words and bad grammer would stand in my way, My mom die at 85 with a 6 grade education she would say: stop! counting the tea leaves and just drink the tea. She lived a long life
    and communication was never a problem with her. I like your idea of an open government but I think the people is more like my Mom,
