Executive Branch

As it relates to the checks and balances of our American government, the Executive Branch is responsible for the daily administration of the state bureaucracy. The head of the Executive Branch is the President of the United States. Underneath the President are the several Departments that have been created by Executive Order. The Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Justice are just a few examples of these subgroups within the Executive Branch. The representative leaders of these departments are collectively known as the President’s “Cabinet” of advisors.

Since the Executive Branch of our government is in charge of administrating the affairs of the nation, it is important to keep them in our prayers. The Executive Branch directs the general political flow of the federal government.

IN THE NEWS

According to reports in multiple news outlets, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has recommended in a draft document that four national monuments be shrunk and that rules for usage be altered at those four and six others. Zinke was asked to review 27 national monuments back in April.

The four monuments to be sized down, although the draft memo does not reportedly say by how much, are Nevada’s Gold Butte, Oregon’s Cascade-Siskyou, Utah’s Bears Ears, and Grand Staircase Escalante. The rules for management include allowing “traditional uses” forbidden in the proclamations made by President Obama and other recent presidents in designing the monuments.

The documents are reportedly still under review by the president and other relevant agencies.
