Blocking Property and Additional Measures With 
                Respect to the Bosnian Serb-Controlled Areas of the 
                Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina

                By the authority vested in me as President by the 
                Constitution and the laws of the United States of 
                America, including the International Emergency Economic 
                Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.), the National 
                Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.), section 5 of 
                the United Nations Participation Act of 1945, as 
                amended (22 U.S.C. 287c), and section 301 of title 3, 
                United States Code, in view of United Nations Security 
                Council Resolution 942 of September 23, 1994, and in 
                order to take additional steps with respect to the 
                crisis in the former Yugoslavia, I hereby expand the 
                scope of the national emergency declared in Executive 
                Order No. 12808 to address the unusual and 
                extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign 
                policy, and economy of the United States posed by the 
                actions and policies of the Bosnian Serb forces and the 
                authorities in the territory that they control, 
                including their refusal to accept the proposed 
                territorial settlement of the conflict in the Republic 
                of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

                I, WILLIAM J. CLINTON, President of the United States 
                of America, hereby order:
