    --------------------------------------------------------------------
      The word "That" in the Act of Sept. 7, 1916, is omitted as
    unnecessary.
      The words "under section 8106 of title 5" are substituted for
    "under section 754 of this title" to reflect the codification of
    the section in title 5, United States Code. The words "a claim for
    compensation under subchapter I of chapter 81 of title 5" are
    substituted for "any claim for compensation" for clarity.
      The words "or both" are substituted for "or by both such fine and
    imprisonment".
      Minor changes in phraseology are made to conform to the style of
    title 18.
                                AMENDMENTS

    in section catchline.

    first place it appears for "fine of not more than $250,000" and
    "fine under this title" the second place it appears for "fine of
    not more than $100,000".
      1994 - Pub. L. 103-333 substituted "False statement or fraud to
    obtain Federal employee's compensation" for "False statement to
    obtain Federal employees' compensation" as section catchline and
    amended text generally. Prior to amendment, text read as follows:
    "Whoever makes, in an affidavit or report required by section 8106
    of title 5 or in a claim for compensation under subchapter I of
    chapter 81 of title 5, a statement, knowing it to be false, is
    guilty of perjury and shall be fined under this title or imprisoned
