HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

      Based on title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Sec. 176 (Mar. 4, 1909, ch.
    321, Sec. 90, 35 Stat. 1105).
      Word "employee" was inserted to avoid ambiguity as to scope of
    section.
      Words "or of any department or agency thereof" were added after
    the words "United States". (See definitions of the terms
    "department" and "agency" in section 6 of this title.)
      Mandatory punishment provisions phrased in alternative.
      The smaller punishment for an offense involving $100 or less was
    added. (See reviser's notes under sections 641 and 645 of this
    title.)
                                AMENDMENTS

    be fined under this title or in a sum equal to the amount of the

    or imprisoned".
      Pub. L. 103-322, Sec. 330016(1)(H), substituted "fined under this
