This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
Pursuant to section 2(b)(6) of the Export-Import Bank Act of 1945, as amended, and Executive Order 11958 of January 18, 1977, as amended by Executive Order 12680 of July 5, 1989, I hereby determine that:
(1) The defense articles and services for which the Government of Colombia has requested Export-Import Bank (Ex-Im) financial guarantees, fourteen UH-60 (Blackhawk) helicopters, are to be used primarily for anti-narcotics purposes;
(2) The sale of such defense articles and services would be in the national interest of the United States;
(3) The Government of Colombia has complied with all U.S.-imposed end-use restrictions on the use of defense articles and services previously financed under the Act; and
(4) The Government of Colombia has not used defense articles or services previously provided under the Act to engage in a consistent pattern of gross violations of internationally recognized human rights.
The determinations shall be reported to Congress and shall be published in the Federal Register.Start Signature
Dated: May 22, 2000.
Secretary of State.
