   NOTIFICATION THAT THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY WITH RESPECT TO CERTAIN

  September 9, 2008.--Message and accompanying papers referred to the 
         Committee on Foreign Affairs and ordered to be printed
                                           The White House,
                                       Washington, August 28, 2008.
Hon. Nancy Pelosi,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
    Dear Madam 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. Consistent with this provision, I have sent 
to the Federal Register the enclosed notice, stating that the 
emergency declared with respect to the terrorist attacks on the 
United States of September 11, 2001, is to continue in effect 
for an additional year.
    The terrorist threat that led to the declaration on 
September 14, 2001, of a national emergency continues. For this 
reason, I have determined that it is necessary to continue in 
effect after September 14, 2008, the national emergency with 
respect to the terrorist threat.
            Sincerely,
                                                    George W. Bush.
                                 Notice

                              ----------                              


    Continuation of the National Emergency With Respect to Certain 
                           Terrorist Attacks

    Consistent with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies 
Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing for 1 year the 
national emergency I declared on September 14, 2001, in 
Proclamation 7463, with respect to the terrorist attacks at the 
World Trade Center, New York, New York, the Pentagon, and 
aboard United Airlines flight 93, and the continuing and 
immediate threat of further attacks on the United States.
    Because the terrorist threat continues, the national 
emergency declared on September 14, 2001, and the powers and 
authorities adopted to deal with that emergency, must continue 
in effect beyond September 14, 2008. Therefore, I am continuing 
in effect for an additional year the national emergency I 
declared on September 14, 2001, with respect to the terrorist 
threat.
    This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and 
transmitted to the Congress.

                                                    George W. Bush.
    The White House, August 28, 2008.
