HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

      This section [section 43] incorporates in revised title 18,
    U.S.C., as section 1863 thereof, and with changes in phraseology,
    the provisions of act of February 10, 1948 (ch. 51, 62 Stat. 19),
    which was not incorporated in title 18 when the revision was
    enacted. The phrase "without hard labor" is omitted from the
    punishment clause as unnecessary, in conformity with the uniform
    style of such title. (See reviser's note to sec. 1 of such revised
    title, appearing in H. Rept. No. 304, April 24, 1947, to accompany
    H.R. 3190, 80th Cong. (pp. A2, A4 of such report).) The concluding
    proviso that "nothing herein shall be construed to limit the
    authority of the Secretary of Agriculture under other law to
    otherwise provide for regulating the occupancy and use of national-
    forest lands and lands administered by the Forest Service", is
    omitted as surplusage.
                                AMENDMENTS
      1994 - Pub. L. 103-322 substituted "fined under this title" for
    "fined not more than $500".
