COMPILED STATUTES-COMMITTEE ON
Being a Compilation of Acts of Congress Re-
Printed for the use of the Committee on Government Operations
PREFACE TO THIRD EDITION
This volume contains most of the legislation enacted by Congress of special interest to the Committee on Government Operations, U.S. House of Representatives. It supplements and updates the first revision, dated April 1969. The original compilation was issued in De
With some exceptions, the statutes herein fall within the committee's legislative jurisdiction as prescribed by law, or by House rule or precedent. This compilation is intended as a convenient reference tool in connection with consideration of future amendments to those statutes and in connection with the committee's duty to review and study, on a continuing basis, the application, administration, execution, and effectiveness of laws within its jurisdiction.
The format used is to print the original text of each basic or initial act and to add immediately thereafter acts which amend it or otherwise relate to it. Appearing before the text of each act are references and citations leading to quick identification of the chief legislative history material: Debates, reports, and hearings.
The numerous reorganization plans submitted by the President pursuant to various reorganization acts have been omitted.
An appendix has been added. Some of the statutes included therein were not considered by the committee or its predecessor. Appendixes A, B, C, and E show the legislation in a form which directly incorporates current amendments. The appendix uses a modified format. To have followed that used in the body would have proved unduly cumbersome.
The committee was aided in the preparation of this compilation by the Congressional Research Service. The committee greatly appreciates this help. Particular recognition for their contributions is due to Messrs. Grover S. Williams and Thomas Lyons of the American Law Division.
