Statutes at Large

5 U.S.C. 118r. Aug. 9, 1955, ch. 690, §3, 69 Stat. 625.
[Uncodified.] June 29, 1956, ch. 479, §3 (as applicable to the Act of Aug. 9, 1955, ch. 690, §3, 69 Stat. 625), 70 Stat. 453.

The section is rewritten to conform to the style of title 18. The statement of the acts prohibited is supplied from the Act of Aug. 9, 1955, ch. 690, §1, 69 Stat. 624, which is codified in section 7311 of title 5, United States Code.

The words "From and after July 1, 1956", appearing in the Act of June 29, 1956, are omitted as executed.

The words "shall be guilty of a felony" are omitted as unnecessary in view of the definitive section 1 of this title. (See reviser's note under section 550 of this title.)

AMENDMENTS

1996—Pub. L. 104–294 substituted "fined under this title" for "fined not more than $1,000" in concluding provisions.
