Codification

As originally enacted by act June 22, 1936 (49 Stat. 1572), the provisions of section 5 of that Act, which authorized enumerated works of improvement, were not classified to the Code. Act July 19, 1937, which amended section 5 of act June 22, 1936, inserted all of the text appearing in this section and is therefore shown in the source credit above as having added section 5 instead of amending it.
Amendments

2014—Pub. L. 113–121, § 1015(a)(4), substituted “: Provided further, That the term ‘non-Federal interest’ has the meaning given that term in section 1962d–5b of title 42.” for period at end.
Pub. L. 113–121, § 1015(a)(3), substituted “Provided, That the Secretary is authorized to receive and expend funds from a State or a political subdivision thereof, and other non-Federal interests or private entities, to operate a hurricane barrier project to support recreational activities at or in the vicinity of the project, at no cost to the Federal Government, if the Secretary determines that operation for such purpose is not inconsistent with the operation and maintenance of the project for the authorized purposes of the project: Provided further, That when” for “Provided, That when”. Amendment was executed to reflect the probable intent of Congress notwithstanding directory language that struck out “Provided, That when”, which had been editorially changed from the original “And provided further, That when” for purposes of codification.
Pub. L. 113–121, § 1015(a)(1), (2), inserted “and other non-Federal interests” after “States and political subdivisions thereof” in two places and inserted “, including a project for navigation on the inland waterways,” after “study or project”.
2011—Pub. L. 112–74substituted “water resources development study or project” for “flood control or environmental restoration work” and inserted “for work, which includes planning and design,” before “to be expended” and “: Provided further, That the term ‘States’ means the several States, the District of Columbia, the commonwealths, territories, and possessions of the United States, and Federally recognized Indian tribes” before period at end.
1999—Pub. L. 106–53inserted “or environmental restoration” after “flood control”.

Department of War designated Department of the Army and title of Secretary of War changed to Secretary of the Army by section 205(a) of act July 26, 1947, ch. 343, title II, 61 Stat. 501. Section 205(a) of act July 26, 1947, was repealed by section 53 of act Aug. 10, 1956, ch. 1041, 70A Stat. 641. Section 1 of act Aug. 10, 1956, enacted “Title 10, Armed Forces” which in sections 3010 to 3013 continued Department of the Army under administrative supervision of Secretary of the Army.
