“I need to have a printout of President Obama’s executive order. It has to do with NDRP and I was told it was controversial.” While the Newton Falls Public Library staff has heard of presidential executive orders, they were unfamiliar with this particular one.
For the most current information about information relating to the President, the staff went to the White House website, www.whitehouse.gov. This site has information relating to all aspects of our government. Using the search words “executive order ndrp” brought up the Executive Order -- National Defense Resources Preparedness. The order was issued by President Obama on March 16, 2012 and “delegates authorities and addresses national defense resource policies and programs under the Defense Production Act of 1950, as amended (the "Act").” We were able to print the full text of the order for our patron.
