This fifth supplement to the 1976 edition of the United States Code has been prepared and published pursuant to section 285b of Title 2 of the Code. It contains the additions to and changes in the general and permanent laws of the United States enacted during the Ninety-fifth and Ninety-sixth Congresses, and the Ninety-seventh Congress, First Session. This supplement together with the 1976 edition establishes prima facie those laws in effect on January 25, 1982, except that titles 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, 10, 11, 13, 14, 17, 18, 23, 28, 32, 35, 37, 38, 39, 44, and subtitle IV of 49, having been enacted into law, establish legal evidence of the law contained in those titles.

This supplement continues the practice of setting out notes captioned “Section referred to in other sections”. These notes have been inserted following each section that is referred to in the text of another section, indicating the section that contains the internal reference. In addition, there is included in the Tables a Table of Internal References which consolidates all internal references contained in the individual "Section referred to in other sections” notes appearing in this supplement.

This supplement has been prepared and published under the supervision of Edward F. Willett, Jr., Law Revision Counsel of the House of Representatives, with the assistance of the West Publishing Company of St. Paul, Minnesota, which assisted in preparing all prior editions and supplements of the Code. Grateful acknowledgment is made of the cooperation by all who have helped in this work, particularly by the staffs of the publishing company and of the Office of the Law Revision Counsel, and by the Government Printing Office.
