PREFACE-2000 EDITION

The 2000 edition of the United States Code represents the 75th anniversary of the Code. It is the thirteenth edition of the Code, first published in 1926 with a new edition published every six years since 1934. This edition is a consolidation and codification of the general and permanent laws of the United States in force on January 2, 2001. The only basic differences between this edition and the 1994 edition of the Code are the changes required to incorporate the legislation enacted subsequent to the 1994 edition. This edition was prepared and published under the supervision of John R. Miller, Law Revision Counsel of the House of Representatives, pursuant to section 285b of Title 2 of the Code, and may be cited “U.S.C. 2000 ed.”

As adopted in 1926, the Code establishes prima facie the general and permanent laws of the United States. Since that time, the Office of the Law Revision Counsel and its predecessors have been engaged in an ongoing effort to revise and codify for enactment into positive law specific titles of the Code. Upon enactment into positive law, those titles became legal evidence of the law contained therein, and provide an updated statement of the law with the elimination of inconsistent, redundant, and obsolete provisions. As indicated in the table of titles, about half of the titles of the Code have been enacted into positive law. When the entire Code is enacted, there will be no need to resort to the numerous volumes of the United States Statutes at Large for general and permanent law.
