It is sold with the understanding that the publisher is not engaged in rendering 1980 legal, accounting or other professional services. If legal bks advice or other expert assistance is needed, the services of a competent professional should be sought. (From the declaration of principles adopted jointly by a committee of the American Bar Association and a committee of publishers.)


Some of the statutes, particularly the Federal Water Pollution Control Act, have been revised regularly with the result that there is considerable confusion as to what is officially contained in these statutes at any one time. Also, at time of publishing, proposed amendments to the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (Solid Waste Disposal Act) were pending in Congress under H.R. 3994 and S. 1156. For current information, see the U.S. Code or other official government sources.
