Historical and Revision Notes

Based on title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., § 146 (Dec. 11, 1926, ch. 2, § 1,44 Stat. 917).
References to persons causing, procuring, aiding or assisting were omitted as unnecessary as such persons are made principals by section 2 of this title.
Also, in first paragraph, word “agency” was substituted for “branch”, in view of definitions of department and agency in section 6 of this title.
Words “upon conviction” in last paragraph were omitted as surplusage since punishment cannot be imposed until a conviction is secured.
Minor changes of phraseology were also made.
Amendments

1994—Pub. L. 103–322substituted “fined under this title” for “fined not more than $5,000”.
