107th Congress, 2d Session - - - - - - - - - - - - House Document 107-280 CONTINUATION OF THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY POSED BY WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION __________ MESSAGE from THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES transmitting NOTIFICATION THAT THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY POSED BY THE PROLIFERATION OF WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION AND THEIR DELIVERY SYSTEMS DECLARED BY EXECUTIVE ORDER 12938 ON NOVEMBER 14, 1994, IS TO CONTINUE IN EFFECT BEYOND NOVEMBER 14, 2002, PURSUANT TO 50 U.S.C. 1622(d) <GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT> November 12, 2002.--Message and accompanying papers referred to the Committee on International Relations and ordered to be printed To the Congress of the United States: 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 emergency posed by the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and their delivery systems declared by Executive Order 12938 on November 14, 1994, as amended, is to continue in effect beyond November 14, 2002, to the Federal Register for publication. The most recent notice continuing this emergency was published in the Federal Register on November 13, 2001 (66 FR 56965). The proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and the means of delivering them continues to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States. Therefore, I have determined the national emergency previously declared must continue in effect beyond November 14, 2002. George W. Bush. The White House, November 6, 2002. NOTICE Continuation of Emergency Regarding Weapons of Mass Destruction On November 14, 1994, by Executive Order 12938, President Clinton declared a national emergency with respect to the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States posed by the proliferation of nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons (weapons of mass destruction) and the means of delivering such weapons. On July 28, 1998, the President issued Executive Order 13094 to amend Executive Order 12938 to more effectively respond to the worldwide threat of weapons of mass destruction proliferation activities. Because the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and the means of delivering them continues to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States, the national emergency first declared on November 14, 1994, and extended on November 14, 1995, November 12, 1996, November 13, 1997, November 12, 1998, November 10, 1999, November 12, 2000, and November 9, 2001, must continue in effect beyond November 14, 2002. In accordance with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing for 1 year the national emergency declared in Executive Order 12938, as amended. This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and transmitted to the Congress. George W. Bush. The White House, November 6, 2002.
