SOURCE

    (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 749; Pub. L. 103-322, title
    XXXIII, Sec. 330016(1)(L), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2147.)

HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

      Based on title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Sec. 74 (Mar. 4, 1909, ch.
    321, Sec. 30, 35 Stat. 1094).
      Words "or any agency thereof" after "United States" and word
    "agency" after "any" and before "officer," were inserted to
    eliminate any possible ambiguity as to scope of section. (See
    definition of "agency" in section 6 of this title.)
      The maximum fine of "$10,000" was substituted for "$500" in order
    to conform punishment provisions to those of comparable sections.
    (See section 1001 of this title.)
      Minor verbal change was made.
                                AMENDMENTS
      1994 - Pub. L. 103-322 substituted "fined under this title" for
    "fined not more than $10,000".
