This volume of legislation and related material is part of a five volume set of laws and related material frequently referred to by the Committees on Foreign Relations of the Senate and International Relations of the House of Representatives, amended to date and annotated to show pertinent history or cross references.
Volumes I (A and B), II (A and B), III and IV contain legislation and related material and are republished with amendments and additions on a regular basis. Volume V, which contains treaties and related material, will be revised as necessary.
We wish to express our appreciation to Dianne E. Rennack and C. Winston Woodland of the Foreign Affairs, Defense, and Trade Division of the Congressional Research Service of the Library of Congress who prepared volume 1-B of this year's compilation.
RICHARD G. LUGAR, Chairman, Committee on Foreign Relations.
HENRY J. HYDE, Chairman, Committee on International Relations.
July 29, 2005.
The body of statutory law set out in this volume was in force, as amended, at the end of 2004.
This volume sets out "session law” as originally enacted by Congress and published by the Archivist of the United States as “slip law” and later in the series United States Statutes at Large (as subsequently amended, if applicable). Amendments are incorporated into the text and distinguished by a footnote. Session law is organized in this series by subject matter in a manner designed to meet the needs of the Congress.
Although laws enacted by Congress in the area of foreign relations are also codified by the Law Revision Counsel of the House of Representatives, typically in title 22 United States Code, those codifications are not positive law and are not, in most instances, the basis of further amendment by the Congress. Cross references to the United States Code are included as footnotes for the convenience of the reader.
All Executive orders and State Department delegations of authority are codified and in force as of February 1, 2005.
Corrections may be sent to Dianne E. Rennack at Library of Congress, Congressional Research Service, Washington D.C., 20540– 7460, or by e-mail at email@example.com.
