In case you had forgot, the Federal Register this morning reminds us the state of emergency declared six years ago — and three days after the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington DC — lives on.
Notice of September 12, 2007
Continuation of the National Emergency With
Respect to Certain Terrorist Attacks
Consistent 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, the Pentagon, and aboard United
Airlines flight 93, and the continuing and immediate
threat of further attacks on the United States.
Because the terrorist threat continues, the national
emergency declared on September 14, 2001, last extended
on September 5, 2006, and the powers and authorities
adopted to deal with that emergency, must continue in
effect beyond September 14, 2007. Therefore, I am
continuing in effect for an additional 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 Congress.
THE WHITE HOUSE,
September 12, 2007.
