L. 100–26, § 7(k)(2), Apr. 21, 1987, 101 Stat. 284; Pub. L. 101–510, div. A, title XIII, § 1301(12), Nov. 5, 1990, 104 Stat. 1668; renumbered § 2922a and amended Pub. L. 109–364, div.

A, title III, § 312(d), Aug. 13, 2018, 132 Stat. 1710.)

2018—Subsec. (d). Pub. L. 115–232 amended subsec. (d) generally. Prior to amendment, subsec. (d) read as follows: “The Secretary concerned shall prioritize energy security and resilience.”

2017—Subsec. (d). Pub. L. 115–91 added subsec. (d).

2006—Pub. L. 109–364, § 2851(b)(2), renumbered section 2394 of this title as this section.

Subsec. (a)(1). Pub. L. 109–364, § 2851(b)(3)(C), substituted “section 2917” for “section 2689”.

1990—Subsec. (b). Pub. L. 101–510 substituted “only after the approval of the proposed contract by the Secretary of Defense” for “only—

“(1) after the approval of the proposed contract by the Secretary of Defense; and

“(2) after the Committees on Armed Services and on Appropriations of the Senate and House of Representatives have been notified of the terms of the proposed contract, including the dollar amount of the contract and the amount of energy or fuel to be delivered to the Government under the contract”.

L. 100–26, which directed that “The term” be inserted in each paragraph after the paragraph designation and the first word after the first quotation marks in each paragraph be revised so that the initial letter of such word is lowercase, could not be executed because subsec.
