Don Allen All FEMA part 6/1010 Feb 92 00:09:00 AREA:HUMAN VIA: QEcho 2.66a <<<<<=====FEMA part 6=============================================>>>>> One Executive Order which was made public dealt with "Chemical and Biological Weapons Proliferation." Signed by Bush on November 16, 1990, EO 12735 leaves the impression that Bush is ordering an increased effort to end the proliferation of chemical and biological weapons. The order states that these weapons "constitute a threat to national security and foreign policy" and declares a national emergency to deal with the threat. To confront this threat, Bush ordered international negotiations, the imposition of controls, licenses, and sanctions against foreign persons and countries for proliferation. Conveniently, the order grants the Secretaries of State and the Treasury the power to exempt the U.S. military. In February of 1991, the Omnibus Export Amendments Act was passed by Congress compatible with EO 12735. It imposed sanctions on countries and companies developing or using chemical or biological weapons. Bush signed the law, although he had rejected the identical measure the year before because it did not give him the executive power to waive all sanctions if he thought the national interest required it.[11] The new bill, however, met Bush's requirements. ____________________________________________________________________ | | | BUSH'S EXECUTIVE ORDERS | | | | * EO 12722 "Blocking Iraqi Government Property and | | Prohibiting Transactions With Iraq," Aug. 2, 1990. | | | | * EO 12723 "Blocking Kuwaiti Government Property," Aug. 2, | | 1990. | | | | * EO 12724 "Blocking Iraqi Government Property and | | Prohibiting Transactions With Iraq," Aug. 9, 1990. | | | | * EO 12725 "Blocking Kuwaiti Government Property and | | Prohibiting Transactions With Kuwait," Aug. 9, 1990. | | | | * EO 12727 "Ordering the Selected Reserve of the Armed | | Forces to Active Duty," Aug. 22, 1990. | | | | * EO 12728 "Delegating the President's Authority To | | Suspend Any Provision of Law Relating to the Promotion, | | Retirement, or Separation of Members of the Armed Forces," | | Aug. 22, 1990. | | | | * EO 12733 "Authorizing the Extension of the Period of | | Active Duty of Personnel of the Selected Reserve of the | | Armed Forces," Nov. 13, 1990. | | | | * EO 12734 "National Emergency Construction Authority," Nov. | | 14, 1990. | | | | * EO 12735 "Chemical and Biological Weapons Proliferation," | | Nov. 16, 1990. | | | | * EO 12738 "Administration of Foreign Assistance and Related | | Functions and Arms Export Control," Dec. 14, 1990. | | | | * EO 12742 "National Security Industrial Responsiveness," | | Jan. 8, 1991. | | | | * EO 12743 "Ordering the Ready Reserve of the Armed Forces | | to Active Duty," Jan. 18, 1991. | | | | * EO 12744 "Designation of Arabian Peninsula Areas, Airspace | | and Adjacent Waters as a Combat Zone," Jan. 21, 1991. | | | | * EO 12750 "Designation of Arabian Peninsula Areas, Airspace | | and Adjacent Waters as the Persian Gulf Desert Shield | | Area," Feb. 14, 1991. | | | | * EO 12751 "Health Care Services for Operation Desert | | Storm," Feb. 14, 1991. | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------- <<<<<<======Continued in FEMA part 7=================================>>>>> Don --- QuickBBS 2.66/O (Reg)
