                                           The White House,
                                      Washington, January 20, 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 emergency declared 
with respect to foreign terrorists who threaten to disrupt the 
Middle East peace process is to continue in effect beyond 
January 23, 2003, to the Federal Register for publication. The 
most recent notice continuing this emergency was published in 
the Federal Register on January 22, 2002 (67 FR 3033).
    The crisis with respect to the grave acts of violence 
committed by foreign terrorists that disrupt the Middle East 
peace process that led to the declaration of a national 
emergency on January 23, 1995, as expanded on August 20, 1998, 
has not been resolved. Terrorist groups continue to engage in 
activities that have the purpose or effect of threatening the 
Middle East peace process and that are hostile to United States 
interests in the region. Such actions constitute an unusual and 
extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, 
and economy of the United States. On August 20, 1998, the 
President identified four additional persons, including Usama 
bin Ladin, who threaten to disrupt the Middle East peace 
process. For these reasons, I have determined that it is 
necessary to continue the national emergency declared with 
respect to foreign terrorists who threaten to disrupt the 
Middle East peace process and to maintain in force the economic 
sanctions against them to respond to this threat.
            Sincerely,
                                                    George W. Bush.








                                 Notice

                              ----------                              


 Continuation of the National Emergency With Respect to Terrorists Who 
           Threaten To Disrupt the Middle East Peace Process

    On January 23, 1995, by Executive Order 12947, the 
President declared a national emergency pursuant to the 
International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701-
1706) to deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to the 
national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United 
States constituted by grave acts of violence committed by 
foreign terrorists who threaten to disrupt the Middle East 
peace process. On August 20, 1998, by Executive Order 13099, 
the President identified four additional persons, including 
Usama bin Ladin, who threaten to disrupt the Middle East peace 
process.
    Because these terrorist activities continue to threaten the 
Middle East process and continue to pose an unusual and 
extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, 
and economy of the United States, the national emergency 
declared on January 23, 1995, as expanded on August 20, 1998, 
and the measures adopted on those dates to deal with that 
emergency must continue in effect beyond January 23, 2003. 
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 foreign terrorists who 
threaten to disrupt the Middle East peace process.
    This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and 
transmitted to the Congress.

                                                    George W. Bush.
    The White House, January 20, 2003.
