This fifth supplement to the 1982 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-eighth and Ninety-ninth Congresses, and the One Hundredth Congress, First Session. This supplement together with the 1982 edition establishes prima facie those laws in effect on February 5, 1988, except that Titles 1, 3, 4, 5, 9, 10, 11, 13, 14, 17, 18, 23, 28, 31, 32, 35, 37, 38, 39, 44, 46, and 49 have been revised, codified, and enacted into positive law and the text thereof is legal evidence of the laws therein contained. Pending preparation of supplemental codification bills, various sections of former Titles 46 and 49 (not included in the original codifications) are set out in the Appendixes to those Titles and retain their prior section numbers.

This supplement was 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 acknowledg. ment is made to the staffs of the Office of the Law Revision Counsel, the West Publishing Company, and the Government Printing Office for their untiring efforts and cooperation.
