Statement on Signing the National Missile Defense Act of 1999

July 22, 1999

    I have signed into law H.R. 4, the ``National Missile Defense Act of 
1999.'' My Administration is committed to addressing the growing danger 
that rogue nations may develop and field long-range missiles capable of 
delivering weapons of mass destruction against the United States and our 
    Section 2 of this Act states that it is the policy of the United 
States to deploy as soon as technologically possible an effective 
National Missile Defense (NMD) system with funding subject to the annual 
authorization of appropriations and the annual appropriation of funds 
for NMD. By specifying that any NMD deployment must be subject to the 
authorization and appropriations process, the legislation makes clear 
that no decision on deployment has been made. This interpretation, which 
is confirmed by the legislative record taken as a whole, is also 
required to avoid any possible impairment of my constitutional 
    Section 3 of the Act states that it is the policy of the United 
States to seek continued negotiated reductions in Russian nuclear 
forces. Thus, section 3 puts the Congress on record as continuing to 
support negotiated reductions in strategic nuclear arms, reaffirming my 
Administration's position that our missile defense policy must take into 
account our arms control and nuclear nonproliferation objectives.
    Next year, we will, for the first time, determine whether to deploy 
a limited National Missile Defense, when we review the results of flight 
tests and other developmental efforts, consider cost estimates, and 
evaluate the threat. Any NMD system we deploy must be operationally 
effective, cost-effective, and enhance our security. In making our 
determination, we will also review progress in achieving our arms 
control objectives, including negotiating any amendments to the ABM 
Treaty that may be required to accommodate a possible NMD deployment.
                                            William J. Clinton
The White House,
July 22, 1999.

Note: H.R. 4, approved July 22, was assigned Public Law No. 106-38. This 
statement was released by the Office of the Press Secretary on July 23.

Proclamation 7210--Imposition of Restraints on Imports of Certain Steel 
Products From the Russian Federation

July 22, 1999

By the President of the United States

of America

A Proclamation

    1. Article XI of the June 1, 1990, Agreement between the United 
States of America and the Russian Federation on Trade Relations (``the 
1990 Agreement''), which was entered into pursuant to title IV of the 
Trade Act of 1974, as amended (``the Trade Act''), provides that the 
Parties will consult with a view toward finding means of preventing 
market disruption, and authorizes the Parties to take action, including 
the imposition of import restrictions, to achieve this goal.
    2. The Government of the United States and the Government of the 
Russian Federation (``Russia'') have mutually agreed that the conditions 
of Article XI of the 1990 Agreement have been met with respect to U.S. 
imports of certain steel products from Russia described in the Annex to 
this proclamation. Further, the Governments have concluded an Agreement 
Concerning Trade in Certain Steel Products from the Russian Federation 
(``the 1999 Agreement'') on remedial and

[[Page 1472]]

preventative measures to address market conditions with respect to such 
    3. Section 125(c) of the Trade Act (19 U.S.C. 2135(c)) provides that 
whenever the United States, acting in pursuance of any of its rights or 
obligations under any trade agreement entered into pursuant to the Trade 
Act, withdraws, suspends, or modifies any obligation with respect to the 
trade of any foreign country or instrumentality, the President is 
authorized to proclaim increased duties or other import restrictions, to 
the extent, at such times, and for such periods as he deems necessary or 
appropriate, in order to exercise the rights or fulfill the obligations 
of the United States.
    4. In pursuance of its rights under the 1990 Agreement, the United 
States Government is withdrawing, suspending, or modifying its 
obligations under Article I of the 1990 Agreement with respect to the 
certain steel products described in the Annex to this proclamation by 
establishing import restrictions to address market conditions with 
respect to these products.
    5. I have determined that, effective immediately and continuing so 
long as the 1999 Agreement remains in effect, it is appropriate to 
proclaim import restrictions as set forth in the Annex to this 
proclamation in order to exercise the rights and fulfill the obligations 
of the United States under the 1990 Agreement.
    6. Section 125(f) of the Trade Act (19 U.S.C. 2135(f)) requires the 
President to provide an opportunity for interested parties to present 
views at a public hearing prior to taking action pursuant to section 125
