Politics Biden announces inauguration decrees on the corona and economic crisis
Biden builds out Cabinet with choices for Commerce and Labor secretaries
When Biden announces these choices, he will have named his choices to lead all of the federal departments. But his Cabinet still awaits choices such as who will lead the CIA. The Commerce Department handles a variety of functions. One of the most prominent now is the census, which happens every 10 years to reapportion House seats in Congress by population, and carries implications for how federal money is distributed. The 2020 census has been mired in controversy for years because of disputes about who should be counted.

The future US President Joe Biden wants to sign around a dozen decrees immediately after his swearing in on Wednesday. These include regulations to cope with the corona pandemic and the economic crisis, as the designated chief of staff in the White House, Ron Klain, announced on Saturday. Other decrees aim to combat climate change and inequality based on discrimination. "In all of these crises there is an urgent need for action," said Klain.
Biden had already announced that on his first day in office he would reverse the United States' exit from the Paris climate agreement, which his predecessor Donald Trump had decided. He also wants to lift the entry ban imposed by the outgoing president on citizens from predominantly Muslim countries.
Biden is not only trying to remove the "most serious damage" that has been caused by the Trump administration, said Klain. As the new president, he also wants to bring the country forward.
Biden is sworn in as the 46th US President in front of the Capitol on Wednesday. For fear of renewed violence after the storming of the Congress headquarters by militant Trump supporters on January 6, the ceremony takes place under draconian security precautions.
