SOURCE

    (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 778; Pub. L. 103-322, title
    XXXIII, Sec. 330016(1)(B), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2146.)

HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

      Based on title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Secs. 324, 325 (Mar. 4,
    1909, ch. 321, Secs. 201, 202, 35 Stat. 1127).
      Sections 324 and 325 of title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., were
    consolidated with changes of phraseology necessary to effect
    consolidation.
      Words "carriage, horse, driver or", "car, steamboat", and "or
    vessel" were omitted as covered by "any carrier or conveyance".
      The punishment provision is derived from said section 324 rather
    than from section 325 which provided only a fine of not more than
    $100 and related only to ferrymen.
                                AMENDMENTS
      1994 - Pub. L. 103-322 substituted "fined under this title" for
    "fined not more than $100".
