Based on section 1150c(a) of title 12, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Banks and Banking (Dec. 20, 1944, ch. 623, §4(a), 58 Stat. 837).
Words “of Agriculture” were inserted after “Secretary” for reasons of identification.
Words “upon conviction thereof” were omitted as surplusage, since punishment can not be imposed until after conviction.
Other changes were made in phraseology without change of substance.Amendments
1994—Pub. L. 103–322 substituted “fined under this title” for “fined not more than $1,000”.
