[House Document 110-137] [From the U.S. Government Publishing Office] 110th Congress, 2d Session - - - - - - - - - - House Document 110-137 CONTINUATION OF EMERGENCY REGARDING EXPORT CONTROL REGULATIONS __________ MESSAGE from THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES transmitting A CONTINUATION OF THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY REGARDING EXPORT CONTROL REGULATIONS, PURSUANT TO 50 U.S.C. 1622(d)
July 24, 2008.--Message and accompanying papers referred to the Committee on Foreign Affairs and ordered to be printed To the Congress of the United States: 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 to the Federal Register for publication 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 for 1 year beyond August 17, 2008. George W. Bush. The White House, July 23, 2008. Notice ---------- Continuation of Emergency Regarding Export Control Regulations On August 17, 2001, consistent with the authority provided to 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, 2008. 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, July 23, 2008.
