This week’s Election Central post updates you on President Biden’s goals for his First 100 Days in the White House.

The world is watching to see what President Joe Biden accomplishes in his first 100 days. But why this particular time frame? What makes the first hundred days an important presidential benchmark? In 1933, during the Great Depression, President Franklin D. Roosevelt laid out an ambitious list of legislation. He worked with Congress to pass 76 laws, and issued 99 executive orders in his first 100 days in office. Since then, the legislative process has grown much more complex. But even so, today’s presidents still use their first hundred days as a benchmark. Presidents often have their highest approval rating just after winning an election. This can help make these first weeks in office the most effective for achieving campaign promises. Here, Election Central looks at what President Biden has already set in motion and what he has planned for his first hundred days in office.
