Continuation of National Emergency Regarding the 
                Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction

                On November 14, 1994, by Executive Order 12938, 
                President Clinton declared a national emergency with 
                respect to the unusual and extraordinary threat to the 
                national security, foreign policy, and economy of the 
                United States posed by the proliferation of nuclear, 
                biological, and chemical weapons (weapons of mass 
                destruction) and the means of delivering such weapons. 
                On July 28, 1998, the President issued Executive Order 
                13094 amending Executive Order 12938 to respond more 
                effectively to the worldwide threat of weapons of mass 
                destruction proliferation activities. On June 28, 2005, 
                I issued Executive Order 13382 which, inter alia, 
                further amended Executive Order 12938 to improve our 
                ability to combat proliferation. Because the 
                proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and the 
                means of delivering them continues to pose an unusual 
                and extraordinary threat to the national security, 
                foreign policy, and economy of the United States, the 
                national emergency first declared on November 14, 1994, 
                must continue in effect beyond November 14, 2005. 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 12938, as amended.

                This notice shall be published in the Federal Register 
                and transmitted to the Congress.

                    (Presidential Sig.)B
