CONTINUATION OF NATIONAL EMERGENCY WITH RESPECT TO THE FORMER LIBERIAN 
  REGIME OF CHARLES TAYLOR--MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED 
                      STATES (H. DOC. NO. 112-45)

  The SPEAKER pro tempore (Mr. Renacci) laid before the House the 
following message from the President of the United States; which was 
read and, together with the accompanying papers, referred to the 
Committee on Foreign Affairs and ordered to be printed:

To the Congress of the United States:
  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 the 
enclosed notice to the Federal Register for publication stating that 
the national emergency and related measures dealing with the former 
regime of Charles Taylor are to continue in effect beyond July 22, 
2011.
  The actions and policies of former Liberian President Charles Taylor 
and other persons, in particular their unlawful depletion of Liberian 
resources and their removal from Liberia and secreting of Liberian 
funds and property, continue to undermine Liberia's transition to 
democracy and the orderly development of its political, administrative, 
and economic institutions and resources. These actions and policies 
continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the foreign 
policy of the United States. For this reason, I have determined that it 
is necessary to continue the national emergency with respect to the 
former Liberian regime of Charles Taylor.
                                                        Barack Obama.  
                                        The White House, July 20, 2011.
