                Executive Order 12909 of April 22, 1994

 

Order of Succession of Officers To Act as 
                Secretary of the Air Force

                By the authority vested in me as President by the 
                Constitution and the laws of the United States of 
                America, including section 3347 of title 5, United 
                States Code, it is hereby ordered as follows:

                Section 1. Succession To Act as the Secretary of the 
                Air Force.

                    (a) In the event of the death, permanent 
                disability, or resignation of the Secretary of the Air 
                Force, the incumbents holding the positions designated 
                below, in the order indicated, shall act for and 
                exercise the powers of the Secretary of the Air Force:

                (1) The Under Secretary of the Air Force.

                (2) The Assistant Secretaries and General Counsel of 
                the Air Force, in the order fixed by their length of 
                service as permanent appointees in such positions.

                (3) The Chief of Staff of the Air Force.

                    (b) In the event of the absence or temporary 
                disability of the Secretary of the Air Force, the 
                incumbents holding the Department of the Air Force 
                positions designated in paragraph (a) of this section, 
                in the order indicated, shall act for and exercise the 
                powers of the Secretary of the Air Force.

                (1) The designation of an Acting Secretary of the Air 
                Force applies only for the duration of the Secretary's 
                absence or disability, and does not affect the 
                authority of the Secretary to resume the powers of the 
                Secretary's office.
                (2) In the event that the Secretary of the Air Force is 
                temporarily absent from the position, the Secretary of 
                the Air Force may continue to exercise the powers and 
                fulfill the duties of his office during the absence, 
                notwithstanding the provisions of this order.

                    (c) Precedence among those officers designated in 
                paragraph (a) of this section who have the same date of 
                appointment shall be determined by the Secretary of the 
                Air Force at the time that such appointments are made.
                    (d) Notwithstanding paragraphs (a) and (b) of this 
                section, an officer shall not act for or exercise the 
                powers of the Secretary of the Air Force under this 
                order if that officer serves only in an acting capacity 
                in the position that would otherwise entitle him to do 
                so.

                Sec. 2. Temporary Nature of Succession. Succession to 
                act for and exercise the powers of the Secretary of the 
                Air Force pursuant to this order shall be on a 
                temporary or interim basis and shall not have the 
                effect of vacating the statutory appointment held by 
                the successor.

                    (Presidential Sig.)>


                THE WHITE HOUSE,
