                Notice of November 8, 2016

                
Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect to the Proliferation of 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, which, 
                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 the national emergency declared in 
                Executive Order 12938.

                This notice shall be published in the Federal Register 
                and transmitted to the Congress.
                
                
                    (Presidential Sig.)

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    November 8, 2016.
