Executive orders issued by governors are not statutes like those passed by state legislatures – but executive orders do have the force of law similar to the federal system. 

Executive orders are usually based on existing constitutional or statutory powers of the Governor, and do not require any action by the state legislature to take effect. 

Here you will find executive orders issued by Governor John Hickenlooper.
