The Utah Constitution & Powers of the Governor. Executive Orders Illegal.

Article VII, Section 4.  [Governor commander-in-chief.]
     The Governor shall be Commander-in-Chief of the military forces of the State, except when they shall be called into the service of the United States. The Governor shall have power to call out the militia to execute the laws, to suppress insurrection, or to repel invasion.

Article VII, Section 5.  [Executive power vested in Governor — Duties — Legal counsel.]

(1)The executive power of the state shall be vested in the Governor who shall see that the laws are faithfully executed.

Article V, Section 1.  [Three departments of government.]
      The powers of the government of the State of Utah shall be divided into three distinct departments, the Legislative, the Executive, and the Judicial; and no person charged with the exercise of powers properly belonging to one of these departments, shall exercise any functions appertaining to either of the others, except in the cases herein expressly directed or permitted.

The State Legislature has law making authority granted to it by the Utah Constitution. An Executive Order is a Law. Dictators issue Decrees. In Utah, we obey the Rule of Law, laid out in our Constitution.

The Utah Constitution states that the Governor shall enforce the laws made by the State Legislature. The exception of course, is those laws that violate our Utah or Federal Constitutional Rights.
