    (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 757; Pub. L. 103-322, title
    XXXIII, Sec. 330016(1)(L), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2147.)



                       HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES                   
      Based on title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Sec. 461 (Mar. 4, 1909, ch.
    321, Sec. 282, 35 Stat. 1144).
      Section restores the intent of the original enactments, R.S. Sec.
    5344, and act Mar. 3, 1905, ch. 1454, Sec. 5, 33 Stat. 1025, and
    makes this section one of general application. In the Criminal Code
    of 1909, by placing it in chapter 11, limited to places within the
    special maritime and territorial jurisdiction of the United States,
    such original intent was inadvertently lost as indicated by the
    entire absence of report or comment on such limitation.

                                AMENDMENTS                            
      1994 - Pub. L. 103-322 substituted "fined under this title" for
    "fined not more than $10,000" in two places.
