Continuation of the National Emergency with Respect to Certain Terrorist Attacks
September 12, 2002
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 I declared on September
14, 2001, in Proclamation 7463, with respect to the terrorist attacks at the
World Trade Center, New York, New York, and the Pentagon, and the continuing
and immediate threat of further attacks on the United States.
By Executive Order 13223 of September 14, 2001, and Executive Order 13253 of
January 16, 2002, I delegated authority to the Secretary of Defense and the
Secretary of Transportation to order members of the Reserve Components to active
duty and to waive certain statutory military personnel requirements. By Executive
Order 13235 of November 16, 2001, I delegated authority to the Secretary of
Defense to exercise certain emergency construction authority.
Because the terrorist threat continues, the national emergency declared on September
14, 2001, and the measures taken on September 14, 2001, November 16, 2001, and
January 16, 2002, to deal with that emergency, must continue in effect beyond
September 14, 2002. Therefore, I am continuing in effect for 1 year the national
emergency I declared on September 14, 2001, with respect to the terrorist threat.
This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and transmitted to the
