Colorado governors’ executive orders are divided into three categories: 1) A Orders, which appoint individuals to boards and commissions, judges, and other political appointments; 2) B Orders, which establish new boards, commissions, councils, and task forces; and 3) D Orders, which contain state government policies and organization changes as well as disaster declarations and mobilization of the Colorado National Guard.
Our library has digitized the B Orders and D Orders from the Lamm administration (1975-1987) and they are now available online. (Digitization of the A Orders is currently in process).
