 November 12, 2014.--Referred to the Committee on Foreign Affairs and 
                         ordered to be printed
                                           The White House,
                                      Washington, October 24, 2014.
Hon. John Boehner,
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, within 90 days 
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 national emergency with 
respect to Sudan is to continue in effect beyond November 3, 
2014.
    The crisis constituted by the actions and policies of the 
Government of Sudan that led to the declaration of a national 
emergency in Executive Order 13067 of November 3, 1997, and the 
expansion of that emergency in Executive Order 13400 of April 
26, 2006, and with respect to which additional steps were taken 
in Executive Order 13412 of October 13, 2006, has not been 
resolved. These actions and policies continue to pose an 
unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and 
foreign policy of the United States. Therefore, I have 
determined that it is necessary to continue the national 
emergency declared in Executive Order 13067 with respect to 
Sudan.
            Sincerely,
                                                      Barack Obama.
                                 Notice

                              ----------                              


      Continuation of the National Emergency With Respect to Sudan

    On November 3, 1997, by Executive Order (E.O.) 13067, the 
President declared a national emergency with respect to Sudan 
and, pursuant to the International Emergency Economic Powers 
Act (50 U.S.C. 1701-1706), took related steps to deal with the 
unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and 
foreign policy of the United States posed by the actions and 
policies of the Government of Sudan. On April 26, 2006, in E.O. 
13400, the President determined that the conflict in Sudan's 
Darfur region posed an unusual and extraordinary threat to the 
national security and foreign policy of the United States, 
expanded the scope of the national emergency to deal with that 
threat, and ordered the blocking of property of certain persons 
connected to the conflict. On October 13, 2006, the President 
issued E.O. 13412 to take additional steps with respect to the 
national emergency and to implement the Darfur Peace and 
Accountability Act of 2006 (Public Law 109-344).
    The actions and policies of the Government of Sudan 
continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the 
national security and foreign policy of the United States. For 
this reason, the national emergency declared in E.O. 13067 of 
November 3, 1997, expanded on April 26, 2006, and with respect 
to which additional steps were taken on October 13, 2006, must 
continue in effect beyond November 3, 2014. Therefore, 
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 with respect to Sudan declared in E.O. 13067.
    This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and 
transmitted to the Congress.

                                                      Barack Obama.
    The White House, October 24, 2014.
