Historical and Revision Notes
Source (U.S. Code)
Source (Statutes at Large)
In subsection (a) the words, “ordnance material” are substituted for the words “ordnance, guns, projectiles”. Posts of the Grand Army of the Republic are omitted from the list of authorized donees because there are no surviving members of that organization. The word “Commonwealth” is inserted to reflect the present status of Puerto Rico. Specific reference to the Canal Zone is omitted as unnecessary, since the Zone is a “possession of the United States” as defined in section 101 of this title and is therefore covered by clause (1).
Subsection (d) is added to note the existence of a later act, codified in § 2572 of this title, which provides similar disposal authority, and to give effect to § 2 of the Act of February 27, 1948, ch. 76, 62 Stat. 37, which is not now contained in the U.S. Code, and which saves this section despite the apparent implied repeal.

“(1) notice of the proposal to make the loan or gift is sent to Congress;
“(2) 30 calendar days of continuous session of Congress have expired after the notice was sent to Congress; and
“(3) during that 30-day period Congress does not pass a concurrent resolution stating in substance that it does not favor the proposed loan or gift.”
1980—Subsec. (a). Pub. L. 96–513, § 513(39), substituted “section 205 of the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949 (40 U.S.C. 486),” for “section 486 of title 40”.
