 September 16, 2010.--Referred to the Committee on Foreign Affairs and 
                         ordered to be printed


                              The White House,

                          Washington, August 12, 2010.
Hon. Nancy Pelosi,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.

Dear Madam 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, 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 emergency caused by the lapse of the 
Export Administration Act of 1979, as amended, is to continue 
in effect for 1 year beyond August 17, 2010.
                                                      Sincerely,
                                          
                                                  Barack Obama.



                                 Notice


                              ----------                              


              Continuation of Emergency Regarding Export 
                          Control Regulations

    On August 17, 2001, consistent with the authority provided 
to the President under the International Emergency Economic 
Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.), the President issued 
Executive Order 13222. In that order, he declared a national 
emergency with respect to the unusual and extraordinary threat 
to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the 
United States in light of the expiration of the Export 
Administration Act of 1979, as amended (50 U.S.C. App. 2401 et 
seq.). Because the Export Administration Act has not been 
renewed by the Congress, the national emergency declared on 
August 17, 2001, must continue in effect beyond August 17, 
2010. Therefore, 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 
13222.
    This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and 
transmitted to the Congress.
                                                      Barack Obama.
    The White House, August 12, 2010.
