Obama declares Jan. 20 a ‘national day of renew and reconciliation’

Even as President Obama and family come to grips with their new status, the hours-old administration is already fast at work.

In his first act as President, Obama approved a memo by White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel which orders all federal agencies to freeze former President Bush’s pending regulations until the new administration has a change to review them.

On his new Web site, WhiteHouse.gov, the President also issued a proclamation that Jan. 20, 2009, is to be a “national day of renewal and reconciliation.”

President Obama called upon all Americans to “serve one another” as a way of helping to “remake this nation.”

No further action was expected from the new administration on the eve of Obama’s ascendancy, as the President and First Lady will be attending 10 separate inaugural balls.

Obama’s first official proclamation follows, as published by WhiteHouse.gov on Jan. 20.
