 So in original. Probably should be “Appropriations”.
Pub. L. 99–662, title IX, § 945, Nov. 17, 1986, 100 Stat. 4200.
In subsection (a), the words “U.S. Army Corps of Engineers” are substituted for “Corps of Engineers” for clarity. The words “Secretary of the Army” are substituted for “Secretary” because of section 2 of the Water Resources Development Act of 1986 (33:2201).
In subsection (d), the words “U.S. Army Corps of Engineers” are substituted for “Corps of Engineers” for clarity.
