Governors' Executive Documents

Table of Contents

General Information

Under authority granted by the Utah Constitution and various federal and state statutes, the Governor periodically issues Executive Documents, which can be categorized as either Executive Orders, Proclamations, and Declarations. Executive Orders set policy for the executive branch; create boards and commissions; provide for the transfer of authority; or otherwise interpret, implement, or give administrative effect to a provision of the Constitution, state law or executive policy. Proclamations call special or extraordinary legislative sessions; designate classes of cities; publish states-of-emergency; promulgate other official formal public announcements or functions; or publicly avow or cause certain matters of state government to be made generally known. Declarations designate special days, weeks or other time periods; call attention to or recognize people, groups, organizations, functions, or similar actions having a public purpose; or invoke specific legislative purposes (such as the declaration of an agricultural disaster).

The Governor's Office staff files Executive Documents that have legal effect with the Division of Administrative Rules for publication and distribution.  The Governor's executive documents are published in the Utah State Bulletin as they are made available by the Governor's Office. The Bulletin is published on the 1st and 15th of each month.  This page, updated periodically, contains links to the Governor's executive documents published in the Utah State Bulletin or otherwise available.

Executive Documents of Other Governors

[ Back to Top ]

Source Information

Each executive document is published from an electronic version provided by the Governor's office. Occasionally, special symbols or characters may appear in the original document (e.g., a section character for the word "section", a publishing quote for a regular quote, etc.). These special symbols or characters may not translate well across computer systems or applications. In cases where special symbols or characters have been used in the original, the full word or the standard character has been substituted.

Documents listed without a link are documents for which an electronic version is not currently available. Documents listed and followed by an asterisk (*) are documents that were not received for timely publication in the Utah State Bulletin.

Signed copies of executive documents are available from the Governor's Office (for the current administration), and the Utah State Archives (past administrations).
