                Memorandum for the Secretary of Defense

                By the authority vested in me as President by the 
                Constitution and the laws of the United States of 
                America, including section 303 of the Defense 
                Production Act of 1950, as amended (the ``Act'') (50 
                U.S.C. 4533), I hereby determine, pursuant to section 
                303(a)(5) of the Act, that the domestic production 
                capability for energetic materials for munitions is 
                essential to the national defense.

                Without Presidential action under section 303 of the 
                Act, United States industry cannot reasonably be

                energetic materials for munitions adequately and in a

                commitments, or other action pursuant to section 303 of 
                the Act are the most cost-effective, expedient, and
