                Notice of November 6, 2009

                
Continuation of Emergency with Respect to Weapons 
                of Mass Destruction

                On November 14, 1994, by Executive Order 12938, the 
                President 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, 
                the President issued Executive Order 13382 that, inter 
                alia, further amended Executive Order 12938 to improve 
                our ability to combat proliferation. 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; therefore, 
                the national emergency first declared on November 14, 
                1994, and extended in each subsequent year, must 
                continue. 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.)

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    November 6, 2009.
