SOURCE

    (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 728; Pub. L. 103-322, title
    XXXIII, Sec. 330016(1)(H), (2)(H), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2147,
    2148; Pub. L. 104-294, title VI, Sec. 606(a), Oct. 11, 1996, 110

HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

      Based on title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Sec. 183 (Mar. 4, 1909, ch.
    321, Sec. 97, 35 Stat. 1106).
      The phrase "Whoever being an officer or agent of the United
    States or of any department or agency thereof," was substituted for
    the words "Any officer connected with, or employed in the Internal
    Revenue Service of the United States * * * And any officer of the
    United States, or any assistant of such officer," in order to
    clarify scope of section. (See definitive section 6 and reviser's
    note thereunder.)
      The embezzlement of Government money or property is adequately
    covered by section 641 of this title.
      The smaller punishment for an offense involving $100 or less was
    added. (See reviser's notes under sections 641 and 645 of this
    title.)
      Minor changes were made in phraseology.
                                AMENDMENTS
      1996 - Pub. L. 104-294 substituted "$1,000" for "$100".
      1994 - Pub. L. 103-322, Sec. 330016(2)(H), substituted "shall be
    fined under this title or not more than the value of the money and
    property thus embezzled or converted, whichever is greater, or
    imprisoned" for "shall be fined not more than the value of the
    money and property thus embezzled or converted, or imprisoned".
      Pub. L. 103-322, Sec. 330016(1)(H), substituted "fined under this
    title" for "fined not more than $1,000" after "he shall be".
