SOURCE

    (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 742; Pub. L. 103-322, title
    XXXIII, Sec. 330016(1)(K), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2147.)

HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

      Based on title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Sec. 78 (Mar. 4, 1909, ch.
    321, Sec. 33, 35 Stat. 1095).
      Words "prize money" after "pension" were deleted as repealed by
    act Mar. 3, 1899, ch. 413, 30 Stat. 1007, repealing all laws
    authorizing prize money distribution.
      Mandatory punishment was rephrased in the alternative.
      In the punishment provision the words "five years" were
    substituted for "ten years" to harmonize it with the punishment
    provisions in sections 287 and 1001 of this title, covering similar
    offenses. (See reviser's note under section 287 of this title.)
                                AMENDMENTS
      1994 - Pub. L. 103-322 substituted "fined under this title" for
    "fined not more than $5,000".
