President Joe Biden went straight to work on Inauguration Day. The former vice president signed more than a dozen executive actions on Wednesday.

The orders addressed a number of the administration’s top concerns including coronavirus, racial equity, the census, the climate crisis and immigration. Many of the orders reversed efforts by President Donald Trump. Other critical measures must be passed legislatively.

Executive Order on Ensuring a Lawful and Accurate Enumeration and Apportionment Pursuant to the Decennial Census

Executive Order On Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government

Executive Order on Revocation of Certain Executive Orders Concerning Federal Regulation
