January 7, 1997.--Referred to the Committee on International Relations 
                       and ordered to be printed
                                           The White House,
                                      Washington, October 16, 1996.
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 to the Federal Register for 
publication, stating that the emergency declared with respect 
to significant narcotics traffickers centered in Colombia is to 
continue in effect for 1 year beyond October 21, 1996.
    The circumstances that led to the declaration on October 
21, 1995, of a national emergency have not been resolved. The 
actions of significant narcotics traffickers centered in 
Colombia continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat 
to the national security, foreign policy, and the economy of 
the United States and to cause unparalleled violence, 
corruption, and harm in the United States and abroad. For these 
reasons, I have determined that it is necessary to maintain in 
force the broad authorities necessary to maintain economic 
pressure on significant narcotics traffickers centered in 
Colombia by blocking their property subject to the jurisdiction 
of the United States and by depriving them of access to the 
U.S. market and financial system.
            Sincerely,
                                                William J. Clinton.
                                 Notice

                              ----------                              


    Continuation of Emergency With Respect to Significant Narcotics 
                    Traffickers Centered in Colombia

    On October 21, 1995, by Executive Order 12978, I declared a 
national emergency to deal with the unusual and extraordinary 
threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of 
the United States constituted by the actions of significant 
foreign narcotics traffickers centered in Colombia, and the 
unparalleled violence, corruption, and harm that they cause in 
the United States and abroad. The order blocks all property and 
interests in property of foreign persons listed in an Annex to 
the order, as well as foreign persons determined to play a 
significant role in international narcotics trafficking 
centered in Colombia, to materially assist in, or provide 
financial or technological support for or goods or services in 
support of, the narcotics trafficking activities of persons 
designated in or pursuant to the order, or to be owned or 
controlled by, or to act for or on behalf of, persons 
designated in or pursuant to the order. The order also 
prohibits any transaction or dealing by United States persons 
or within the United States in such property or interests in 
property. Because the activities of significant narcotics 
traffickers centered in Colombia continue to threaten the 
national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United 
States and to cause unparalleled violence, corruption, and harm 
in the United States and abroad, the national emergency 
declared on October 21, 1995, and the measures adopted pursuant 
thereto to deal with that emergency, must continue in effect 
beyond October 21, 1996. Therefore, in accordance with section 
202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I 
am continuing the national emergency for 1 year with respect to 
significant narcotics traffickers centered in Colombia.
    This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and 
transmitted to the Congress.
                                                William J. Clinton.
    The White House, October 16, 1996.
