17 executive actions President Biden Will Take Right Away

from NPR

Just hours after he is sworn into office on Inauguration Day, President-elect Joe Biden plans to sign 17 executive actions in the Oval Office to try to hit the ground running on his top priorities — and to roll back some of President Trump’s initiatives in those areas, a group of his top advisers told reporters.

Biden wants to build momentum on his plans to address the COVID-19 crisis, the economy, racial justice and climate.

Below is a partial list of Biden’s planned actions:

  • Require the wearing of masks and social distancing in federal buildings and on federal lands by federal employees and contractors.
  • Rejoin the World Health Organization
  • Ask federal agencies to extend eviction and foreclosure moratoriums through March 31
  • Ask Education Department to extend federal student loan payment and interest pause through September 30
  • Rejoin the Paris climate agreement
  • Revoke the presidential permit for the Keystone XL pipeline
  • Place a temporary moratorium on oil and gas leasing in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge
  • Begin to reverse more than 100 actions Trump took to roll back environmental regulations
  • Rescind President Trump’s 1776 Commission and revoke Trump’s order limiting diversity training
  • Stop on all wall construction at the southern border
  • Reverse the Trump directive to exclude undocumented immigrants from the census numbers used to reapportion each state’s share of Congressional seats and Electoral College votes
