Fourth-and-a-Half: The Ranking of Executive Orders according to Art. VI of the U.S. Constitution

Are you curious about executive orders, and why some have been struck down in the courts but others have been upheld as constitutional? Learn about how the Supremacy Clause in Art. VI of the U.S. Constitution requires judges to rank governors’ executive orders as “fourth-and-a-half” when determining which orders have the force of law and which orders should be nullified.
