  February 4, 2003.--Message and accompanying papers referred to the

To the Congress of the United States:
    As required by section 401(c) of the National Emergencies

Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. 1703(c), I transmit 
herewith a 6-month report prepared by my Administration on the

                                                    George W. Bush.
    The White House, January 29, 2003.
 Periodic Report on the National Emergency With Respect to the Western 
                                Balkans

    This report to the Congress addresses developments over the 
course of the past 6 months concerning the national emergency 
with respect to the Western Balkans that was declared in 
Executive Order 13219 of June 26, 2001, in response to the 
threats to peace and international stabilization efforts in the 
Western Balkans resulting from the actions of persons engaged 
in, or assisting, sponsoring, or supporting, (i) extremist 
violence in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, and 
elsewhere in the Western Balkans region, or (ii) acts 
obstructing implementation of the Dayton Accords in Bosnia or 
United Nations Security Council Resolution 1244 of June 10, 
1999, in Kosovo. This report is submitted pursuant to section 
204(c) of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 
U.S.C. 1703(c), and section 401(c) of the National Emergencies 
Act, 50 U.S.C. 1641(c).
    1. On May 30, 2002, the Department of the Treasury's Office 
of Foreign Assets Control (``OFAC'') issued the Western Balkans 
Transactions Regulations (the ``Regulations''), 31 C.F.R. Part 
588 (67 Fed. Reg. 37671, May 30, 2002), as an interim final 
rule to implement Executive Order 13219. No public comments 
were received by the closing date of July 29, 2002.
    2. In the 6-month period since June 27, 2002, OFAC 
designated three individuals meeting the criteria for blocking 
under Executive Order 13219. During this period, OFAC has 
issued no specific licenses authorizing transactions otherwise 
prohibited by the Regulations, and has neither assessed nor 
collected any civil monetary penalty for a violation of the 
Regulations. OFAC continues to administer the Western Balkans 
sanctions and to disseminate details of this program to the 
financial, securities, and international trade communities by 
both electronic and conventional media.
    3. The expenses incurred by the Federal Government in the 
6-month period from June 27 to December 26, 2002, that are 
directly attributable to the exercise of powers and authorities 
conferred by the declaration of a national emergency with 
respect to the Western Balkans, are estimated at approximately 
$90,000, most of which represent wage and salary costs for 
Federal personnel. Personnel costs were largely centered in the 
Department of the Treasury (particularly in the Office of 
Foreign Assets Control, the Office of the Under Secretary for 
Enforcement, and the Office of the General Counsel) and the 
Department of the State.
    4. The situation in the Western Balkans continues to 
present an extraordinary and unusual threat to the national 
security and foreign policy of the United States. I shall 
continue to exercise the powers at my disposal to deal with 
this unusual and extraordinary threat and will report 
periodically to the Congress on significant developments as 
required by law.
