SOURCE

    (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 701; Pub. L. 107-273, div. B,
    title IV, Sec. 4002(d)(1)(D), Nov. 2, 2002, 116 Stat. 1809.)

HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

      Based on title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Sec. 54 (Mar. 4, 1909, ch.
    321, Sec. 21, 35 Stat. 1092).
      Scope of section was enlarged to cover all possessions of the
    United States. When the section was first enacted in 1861 there
    were no possessions, and hence the use of the words "State or
    Territory" was sufficient to describe the area then subject to the
    jurisdiction of the United States. The word "District" was inserted
    by the codifiers of the 1909 Criminal Code.
                                AMENDMENTS
      2002 - Pub. L. 107-273 substituted "under this title" for "not
    more than $5,000".
