                                           The White House,
                                       Washington, January 2, 1997.
Hon. Newt Gingrich,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Speaker: Section 202(d) of the National 
Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)) provides for the automatic 
termination of a national emergency unless, prior to the 
anniversary date of its declaration, the President publishes in 
the Federal Register and transmits to the Congress a notice 
stating that the emergency is to continue in effect beyond the 
anniversary date. In accordance with this provision, I have 
sent the enclosed notice, stating that the Libyan emergency is 
to continue in effect beyond January 7, 1997, to the Federal 
Register for publication. Similar notices have been sent 
annually to the Congress and the Federal Register since 
December 23, 1986. The most recent notice appeared in the 
Federal Register on January 3, 1996.
    The crisis between the United States and Libya that led to 
the declaration of a national emergency on January 7, 1986, has 
not been resolved. The Government of Libya has continued its 
actions and policies in support of terrorism, despite the calls 
by the United Nations Security Council, in Resolutions 731 
(1992), 748 (1992), and 883 (1993), that it demonstrate by 
concrete actions its renunciation of such terrorism. Such 
Libyan actions and policies pose a continuing unusual and 
extraordinary threat to the national security and vital foreign 
policy interests of the United States. For these reasons, I 
have determined that it is necessary to maintain in force the 
broad authorities necessary to apply economic pressure to the 
Government of Libya to reduce its ability to support 
international terrorism.
            Sincerely,
                                                William J. Clinton.


                                 Notice

                              ----------                              


                    Continuation of Libyan Emergency

    On January 7, 1986, by Executive Order No. 12543, President 
Reagan declared a national emergency to deal with the unusual 
and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign 
policy of the United States constituted by the actions and 
policies of the Government of Libya. On January 8, 1986, by 
Executive Order No. 12544, the President took additional 
measures to block Libyan assets in the United States. The 
President has transmitted a notice continuing this emergency to 
the Congress and the Federal Register every year since 1986. 
The most recent notice appeared in the Federal Register on 
January 5, 1996.
    The crisis between the United States and Libya that led to 
the declaration of a national emergency on January 7, 1986, has 
not been resolved. The Government of Libya has continued its 
actions and policies in support of terrorism, despite the calls 
by the United Nations Security Council, in Resolutions 731 
(1992), 748 (1992), and 883 (1993), that it demonstrate by 
concrete actions its renunciation of such terrorism. Such 
Libyan actions and policies pose a continuing unusual and 
extraordinary threat to the national security and vital foreign 
policy interests of the United States. For these reasons, the 
national emergency declared on January 7, 1986, and the 
measures adopted on January 7 and January 8, 1986, to deal with 
that emergency, must continue in effect beyond January 7, 1997. 
Therefore, in accordance with Section 202(d) of the National 
Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing the 
national emergency with respect to Libya. This notice shall be 
published in the Federal Register and transmitted to the 
Congress.

                                                William J. Clinton.
    The White House, January 2, 1997.
