January 7, 2003.--Referred to the Committee on International Relations 
                       and ordered to be printed.
                                           The White House,
                                       Washington, January 2, 2003.
Hon. J. Dennis Hastert,
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 Libya emergency is 
to continue in effect beyond January 7, 2003, to the Federal 
Register for publication. The most recent notice continuing 
this emergency was published in the Federal Register on January 
4, 2002 (67 FR 637).
    The crisis between the United States and Libya that led to 
the declaration on January 7, 1986, of a national emergency has 
not been resolved. Despite the United Nations Security 
Council's suspension of U.N. sanctions against Libya upon the 
Libyan government's hand-over of the Pan Am 103 bombing 
suspects, Libya has not yet complied with its obligations under 
U.N. Security Council Resolutions 731 (1992), 748 (1992), and 
883 (1993), which include Libya's obligation to accept 
responsibility for the actions of of its officials and pay 
compensation.
    For these reasons, I have determined that it is necessary 
to continue the national emergency declared with respect to 
Libya and maintain in force the comprehensive sanctions against 
Libya to respond to this threat.
            Sincerely,
                                                    George W. Bush.
                                 Notice

                              ----------                              


      Continuation of the National Emergency With Respect to Libya

    On January 7, 1986, by Executive Order 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 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 crisis between the United States and Libya that led to 
the declaration of a national emergency on January 7, 1986, has 
not been resolved. Despite the United Nations Security 
Council's suspension of U.N. Sanctions against Libya upon the 
Libyan government's hand-over of the Pan Am 103 bombing 
suspects, Libya has not yet compiled with its obligations under 
U.N Security Council Resolutions 731 (1992), 748 (1992), and 
883 (1993), which include Libya's obligation to accept 
responsibility for the actions of its officials and pay 
compensation.
    Therefore, 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 with respect to Libya. This 
notice shall be published in the Federal Register and 
transmitted to the Congress.

                                                    George W. Bush.
    The White House, Janauary 2, 2003.
