Biden has suspended Trump’s executive order on securing the United States Bulk-Power System.

The Secretary of Energy and the Director of the Office of Management and Budget(OMB) will analyze if a replacement order needs to be issued.

The Secretary of Energy and the Director of the Office of Management and Budget(OMB) will analyze if a replacement order needs to be issued. On Jan. 21, 2021, President Joe Biden suspended an executive order signed by former President Donald Trump in May 2020 on securing the United States Bulk-Power System for 90 days.

The then U.S. Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette had found Trumps' executive order to be imperative "against exploitation and attacks by foreign threats" and would " diminish the ability of foreign adversaries to target our critical electric infrastructure.”

The Executive Order on "Protecting Public Health and the Environment and Restoring Science to Tackle the Climate Crisis” noted that "the Secretary of Energy and the Director of OMB shall jointly consider whether to recommend that a replacement order be issued."

Biden’s executive order directed the heads of all agencies to review "orders, guidance documents, policies, and any other similar agency actions (agency actions) promulgated, issued, or adopted between January 20, 2017, and January 20, 2021, that are or may be inconsistent with, or present obstacles" to the policy listed in his executive order.

The order was one among many that Biden passed since he took office on Jan. 20, 2021.
