On July 26, 1935, President Roosevelt signed H. R. 6323, "to provide for the custody of Federal proclamations, orders, regulations, notices, and other documents, and for the prompt and uniform printing and distribution thereof." To date, there has been no government serial publication containing all of the Executive orders signed by the President. The need for such a publication had been frequently pointed out, but to no avail. Legal complication resulting from the rapidly rising flood of executive and administrative orders issued to carry into effect the President's New Deal program led to the framing of H. R. 6323. The bill was introduced by Representative Celler on March 1. There was little opposition to it but its passage was delayed by differences between the House and Senate as to details. Eventually, a conference report was accepted by both houses and the bill was sent to the President for his signature.
