This subchapter, referred to in subsecs. (d)(1), (2), (4)(B), (5), (e)(1), (2), and (f)(2), was in the original “this title”, meaning title II of Pub. L. 111–203, July 21, 2010, 124 Stat. 1442, which is classified principally to this subchapter. For complete classification of title II to the Code, see Tables.
Section 5390 (n)(14) of this title, referred to in subsec. (d)(1)(C), probably means section 5390 (n)(9), because section 5390 (n) of this title does not contain a par. (14) and section 5390 (n)(9) of this title relates to orderly liquidation plans.
The Inspector General Act of 1978, referred to in subsecs. (d)(3) and (e)(3), is Pub. L. 95–452, Oct. 12, 1978, 92 Stat. 1101, which is set out in the Appendix to Title 5, Government Organization and Employees.
