    September 4, 2002.--Referred to the Committee on International 
                  Relations and ordered to be printed
                                           The White House,
                                       Washington, August 14, 2002.
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 caused by 
the lapse of the Export Administration Act of 1979, as amended, 
is to continue in effect beyond August 17, 2002, to the Federal 
Register for publication.
            Sincerely,
                                                    George W. Bush.
                                 Notice

                              ----------                              


     CONTINUATION OF EMERGENCY REGARDING EXPORT CONTROL REGULATIONS

    On August 17, 2001, consistent with the authority provided 
me under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 
U.S.C. 1701 et seq.), I issued Executive Order 13222. In that 
order, I declared a national emergency with respect to the 
unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, 
foreign policy, and economy of the United States in light of 
the expiration of the Export Administration Act of 1979, as 
amended (50 U.S.C. App. 2401 et seq.). Because the Export 
Administration Act has not been renewed by the Congress, the 
national emergency declared on August 17, 2001, must continue 
in effect beyond August 17, 2002. 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 
declared in Executive Order 13222.
    This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and 
transmitted to the Congress.
                                                    George W. Bush.
    The White House, August 14, 2002.
