Orders That Adapt and Implement Law

(p.143) Chapter Seven An Independent President or Administrator?
The Dual Executive

Chapter 7 investigates the dual roles of the executive after laws have been passed by Congress. At this stage, independent presidents issue unilateral orders to adapt legislation to suit their needs and administrators use them to faithfully implement legislation. This is the final stage in the policy-making process and one where the president has the duty to execute law. The challenge for presidents is to shape the outcome of the legislative process to their favor. This is the president’s final opportunity, and at the height of his or her powers the president takes full advantage of this privileged place.
