President Bush issued Executive Order No. 13211, "Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use," on May 18, 2001 (66 Fed. Reg. 28355 (May 22, 2001)). In order to ensure that agencies "appropriately weigh and consider the effects of the Federal Government's regulations on the supply, distribution, and use of energy," the President has directed agencies to prepare and submit to OMB's Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) a "Statement of Energy Effects" for their "significant energy actions." This memorandum provides guidance on the implementation of this Order.
