CRS: “The International Emergency Economic Powers Act: Origins, Evolution, and Use”

(Source: 
Congressional Research Service, 1 Aug 2019.) [Excerpts.] 
 
Summary of 66-page report:  
The International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA) provides the President broad authority to regulate a variety of economic transactions following a declaration of national emergency. IEEPA, like the Trading with the Enemy Act (TWEA) from which it branched, sits at the center of the modern U.S. sanctions regime. Changes in the use of IEEPA powers since the act’s enactment in 1977 have caused some to question whether the statute’s oversight provisions are robust enough given the sweeping economic powers it confers upon the President upon declaration of a state of emergency.
 
Over the course of the twentieth century, Congress delegated increasing amounts of emergency power to the President by statute. The Trading with the Enemy Act was one such statute. Congress passed TWEA in 1917 to regulate international transactions with enemy powers following the U.S. entry into the First World War. Congress expanded the act during the 1930s to allow the President to declare a national emergency in times of peace and assume sweeping powers over both domestic and international transactions. Between 1945 and the early 1970s, TWEA became the central means to impose sanctions as part of U.S. Cold War strategy. Presidents used TWEA to block international financial transactions, seize U.S.-based assets held by foreign nationals, restrict exports, modify regulations to deter the hoarding of gold, limit foreign direct investment in U.S. companies, and impose tariffs on all imports into the United States.
 
Following committee investigations that discovered that the United States had been in a state of emergency for more than 40 years, Congress passed the National Emergencies Act (NEA) in 1976 and IEEPA in 1977. The pair of statutes placed new limits on presidential emergency powers. Both included reporting requirements to increase transparency and track costs, and the NEA required the President to annually assess and extend, if appropriate, an emergency. However, some experts argue that the renewal process has become pro forma. The NEA also afforded Congress the means to terminate a national emergency by adopting a concurrent resolution in each chamber. A decision by the Supreme Court, in a landmark case, however, found the use of concurrent resolutions to terminate an executive action unconstitutional. Congress amended the statute to require a joint resolution, significantly increasing the difficulty of terminating an emergency. Like TWEA, IEEPA has become an important means to impose economic-based sanctions since its enactment; like TWEA, Presidents have frequently used IEEPA to restrict a variety of international transactions; and like TWEA, the subjects of the restrictions, the frequency of use, and the duration of emergencies have expanded over time. Initially, Presidents targeted foreign states or their governments. Over the years, however, presidential administrations have increasingly used IEEPA to target non-state individuals and groups, such as terrorists and persons who engage in malicious cyber-enabled activities. 
 
As of August 1, 2019, Presidents had declared 56 national emergencies invoking IEEPA, 31 of which are still ongoing.
Typically, national emergencies invoking IEEPA last nearly a decade, although some have lasted significantly longer—the
first state of emergency declared under the NEA and IEEPA, which was declared in response to the taking of U.S. embassy
staff as hostages by Iran in 1979, may soon enter its fifth decade.
 
IEEPA grants sweeping powers to the President to control economic transactions. Despite these broad powers, Congress has never attempted to terminate a national emergency invoking IEEPA. Instead, Congress has directed the President on 
numerous occasions to use IEEPA authorities to impose sanctions. Congress may want to consider whether IEEPA
appropriately balances the need for swift action in a time of crisis with Congress’ duty to oversee executive action. Congress may also want to consider IEEPA’s role in implementing its influence in U.S. foreign policy and national security decision-making. …

(Source:
Reuters, 25 Aug 2019.) [Excerpts.]
 
China’s crude oil imports from Venezuela plunged 62% in July from the previous month, Chinese customs data showed on Sunday, as growing tension between Washington and the Maduro government made buyers wary of taking oil from the South American exporter. …
 
Venezuela’s oil exports fell 17.5% in July to their second-lowest since Washington imposed the sanctions in January, according to internal data from the company and Refinitiv Eikon. 
 
China National Petroleum Corp, a leading buyer of Venezuelan oil, has halted loadings in August amid concerns over potential hits by the secondary sanctions. …

Shares of China Merchants Bank (CMB), a blue-chip stock in Hong Kong, tumbled on Monday, with investors shying away from risky assets that could face further headwinds as the trade war between China and the United States escalates once again. …
 
A more important reason behind Monday’s decline is that most foreign investors are bearish about the Hang Seng Index for the whole year, and CMB has a higher beta among banking chips – essentially moving with a bigger band when the benchmark index moves, Chen added. …

COM_a112C.N. Stinebower, C.B. Monahan & A.M. Solorzano: “Unique Challenges for U.S. Companies After New Designation of the Government of Venezuela”

(Source: Winston & Strawn LLP, 22 Aug 2019.)
 
* Authors: Cari N. Stinebower, Esq., cstinebower@winston.com, +1 202 282 5788, Christopher B. Monahan, Esq., cmonahan@winston.com, +1 202 282 5778, Alexandra M. Solorzano, Esq., asolorzano@winston.com, +1 202 282 5748, all of Winston & Strawn LLP.
 
After the publication on August 5, 2019, of the new Executive Order (E.O.) 13884 – “Blocking Property of the Government of Venezuela,” which blocks all property and interests in property from the Government of Venezuela, U.S., and foreign companies have struggled to interpret its scope. That struggle has led many to submit specific license applications or requests for interpretative guidance from the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).
 
In particular, the new sanctions prohibiting U.S. companies from dealing with the Government of Venezuela also contain a large number of general licenses -similar to those provided in other, more comprehensive embargo programs. The scope of the general licenses has been the subject of practitioners and industry debate as they try to determine the limits of such authorizations. For example, General License 28 (GL 28) “Authorizing Certain Activities Necessary to the Wind Down of Operations or Existing Contracts Involving the Government of Venezuela” is narrowly written in comparison with other wind down licenses issued under the Ukraine-Russia related sanctions program, including, General License 5 authorizing the divestiture or transfer to a foreign person of the U.S. person’s share of ownership, and General Licenses 14-E15-F, and 16E, authorizing transactions ordinarily incident and necessary to the maintenance of operations, contracts or other agreements. GL 28 is, rather, limited to the transactions that relate to the wind-down of operations and does not specifically mention authorization to engage in transactions for the maintenance of such contracts.
 
In addition, U.S. companies have experienced challenges with accomplishing a total wind-down of Venezuela-related operations involving the Government within the time limit imposed by GL 28 (i.e.through 12:01 a.m. eastern daylight time, September 4, 2019.)
 
Another major challenge for U.S. companies is the lack of a broad general license authorizing all activities (otherwise prohibited) that are ordinarily incident and necessary to conduct the activities authorized by general licenses. The lack of this general license, normally available in other sanctions regimes, limits the usefulness of some of the newly issued and revised general licenses because many U.S. persons cannot conduct authorized transactions without dealing with the Government of Venezuela for transactions incident to the authorized activity (e.g., dealing with the Government of Venezuela for the payment of taxes, request of permits, etc.). This is also the case for U.S. companies dealing exclusively with the private sector in Venezuela because the government presence is such that most of the transactions – even if purely private- involve certain dealings or interactions with the government.
 
Finally, U.S. persons – even if dealing exclusively with the private sector in Venezuela – are prohibited from making payments into government-owned banks, which account for the majority of the financial sector in Venezuela. These banks have not been specifically designated by OFAC, but operate as what is sometimes referred to as a ‘Shadow-Specially Designated Nationals (SDNs)’ per the application of the 50% ownership rule and based on the new E.O.’s definition of the Government of Venezuela. Consistent with prior OFAC guidance, newly issued OFAC Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) regarding Venezuela sanctions reiterate that financial institutions should conduct its own customer due diligence – including identifying ownership structure – to ensure that none of the parties involved in a transaction are SDNs. U.S. companies and financial institutions will therefore have to block and report such payments.
 
U.S. companies facing these, and several other challenges as a result of the new sanctions, need to have answers and may need additional authorization or specific guidance from OFAC. Many must do so before the license expires to wind-down operations involving the Government of Venezuela on September 4th.

tweets stating that (1) duty rates for China Section 301 Lists 1, 2, and 3 will increase from 25% to 30% beginning on October 1, 2019, and (2) China Section 301 List 4A duty rates scheduled to be imposed on September 1, 2019 will be 15% rather than 10%.  There is no mention at this time of an increase of the 10% duty rate on China Section 301 List 4B goods scheduled to go into effect December 15, 2019.
 
President Trump’s tweets follow China’s 
announcement that it will impose tariffs on $75 billion in U.S. goods in two batches on September 1 and December 15, 2019 in retaliation for the imposition of U.S. duties on $300 billion of China goods covered by Lists 4A and 4B. …

ENEDITOR’S NOTES

*
Bret Harte (Francis Brett Hart; 25 Aug 1836 – 5 May 1902; was an American short-story writer and poet, best remembered for his short fiction featuring miners, gamblers, and other romantic figures of the California Gold Rush.)

 –
“Never a tear bedims the eye that time and patience will not dry.”

Mother Teresa (Mary Teresa Bojaxhiu, born Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu; 26 Aug 1910 – 5 Sep 1997; honored in the Roman Catholic Church as Saint Teresa of Calcutta, was an Albanian-Indian nun and missionary.)

 –
“We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty.”

Monday is pun day.

* I got a new pair of gloves today, but they’re both ‘lefts’ which, on the one hand, is great, but on the other, it’s just not right.

* I bought some shoes from a drug dealer. I don’t know what he laced them with, but I’ve been tripping all day!

* Goodbye boiled water. You will be mist!
