  November 16, 2004.--Message and accompanying papers referred to the 
     Committee on International Relations and ordered to be printed
                                           The White House,
                                      Washington, October 19, 2004.
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 significant narcotics traffickers centered in 
Colombia is to continue in effect beyond October 21, 2004, to 
the Federal Register for publication. The most recent notice 
continuing this emergency was published in the Federal Register 
on October 20, 2003 (68 Fed. Reg. 60023).
    The circumstances that led to the declaration on October 
21, 1995, of a national emergency have not been resolved. The 
actions of significant narcotics traffickers centered in 
Colombia continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat 
to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the 
United States and to cause extreme violence, corruption, and 
harm in the United States and abroad. For these reasons, I have 
determined that it is necessary to maintain economic pressure 
on significant narcotics traffickers centered in Colombia by 
blocking their property or interests in property that are in 
the United States or within the possession or control of United 
States persons and by depriving them of access to U.S. 
commercial and financial markets.
            Sincerely,
                                                    George W. Bush.
                                 Notice

                              ----------                              


  Continuation of the National Emergency With Respect to Significant 
               Narcotics Traffickers Centered in Colombia

    On October 21, 1995, by Executive Order 12978, the 
President declared a national emergency pursuant to the 
International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et 
seq.) to deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to the 
national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United 
States constituted by the actions of significant narcotics 
traffickers centered in Colombia, and the extreme level of 
violence, corruption, and harm such actions cause in the United 
States and abroad.
    The order blocks all property and interests in property 
that are in the United States or within the possession or 
control of United States persons or foreign persons listed in 
an annex to the order, as well as of foreign persons determined 
to play a significant role in international narcotics 
trafficking centered in Colombia. The order similarly blocks 
all property and interests in property of foreign persons 
determined to materially assist in, or provide financial or 
technological support for or goods or services in support of, 
the narcotics trafficking activities of persons designated in 
or pursuant to the order, or persons determined to be owned or 
controlled by, or to act for or on behalf of, persons 
designated in or pursuant to the order. The order also 
prohibits any transaction or dealing by United States persons 
or within the United States in such property or interests in 
property.
    Because the actions of significant narcotics traffickers 
centered in Colombia continue to threaten the national 
security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States and 
to cause an extreme level of violence, corruption, and harm in 
the United States and abroad, the national emergency declared 
on October 21, 1995, and the measures adopted pursuant thereto 
to deal with that emergency, must continue in effect beyond 
October 21, 2004. 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 
significant narcotics traffickers centered in Colombia. This 
notice shall be published in the Federal Register and 
transmitted to the Congress.

                                                    George W. Bush.
    The White House, October 19, 2004.

                                  <all>
