Section 7981 of this title, referred to in subsec. (c)(5), was in the original “section 1401”, and was translated as reading “section 1501”, meaning section 1501 ofPub. L. 107–171to reflect the probable intent of Congress, because section 1501 ofPub. L. 107–171relates to Federal milk price support program. Section 1401 ofPub.
