COALITION PROVISIONAL AUTHORITY ORDER NUMBER 70

AMENDMENTS TO RECONSTRUCTION LEVY

Pursuant to my authority as Administrator of the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA),
and under the laws and usages of war, and consistent with relevant U.N. Security Council
resolutions, including Resolutions 1483 and 1511 (2003),

Recognizing that the effective administration of Iraq requires funding for improvements
to its infrastructure and capital public investment,

Noting that the reconstruction levy was imposed under CPA Order Number 38,

Noting that the effective date for imposition of the reconstruction levy was delayed until
March 1, 2004, pursuant to CPA Order Number 47,

Noting further that the effective date for imposition of the reconstruction levy was again
delayed until April 1, 2004, pursuant to CPA Order Number 54, Section 7,

Determined that the collection of said levy be undertaken efficiently and effectively
without disrupting trade relations or impeding reconstruction efforts or import flow,

I hereby promulgate the following:

Section 1

2) Coalition Provisional Authority Order Number 54 (CPA/ORD/24 February
2004/54), Trade Liberalization Policy 2004, is hereby amended by deleting
