Bill Would Restrict Secret Executive Orders

Senators Russ Feingold and Sheldon Whitehouse have introduced a bill which would prevent the President from rescinding or modifying publicly published Executive Orders in secret.
"No one disputes that a President can withdraw or revise an Executive Order at any time," Feingold said as he introduced the bill Thursday. "But abrogating a published Executive order without any public notice works a secret change in the law."
