HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

      Based on title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Sec. 83 (Mar. 4, 1909, ch.
    321, Sec. 35, 35 Stat. 1095; Oct. 23, 1918, ch. 194, 40 Stat. 1015;
    June 18, 1934, ch. 587, 48 Stat. 996; Apr. 4, 1938, ch. 69, 52
    Stat. 197).
      To clarify meaning of "department" the word "agency" was inserted
    after it. (See definitions of "department" and "agency" in section
    6 of this title.)
      Words "or any corporation in which the United States of America
    is a stockholder" were omitted as unnecessary in view of definition
    of "agency" in section 6 of this title.
      Minor changes in phraseology were made.
                                AMENDMENTS
      1994 - Pub. L. 103-322 substituted "fined under this title" for
    "fined not more than $10,000".
