22 U.S. Code § 3005. Report relating to Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe
2002—Pub. L. 107–228 amended section generally. Prior to amendment, section read as follows: “In order to assist the Commission in carrying out its duties, the President shall submit to the Commission an annual report,, which shall include (1) a detailed survey of actions by the signatories of the Final Act reflecting compliance with or violation of the provisions of the Final Act, and (2) a listing and description of present or planned programs and activities of the appropriate agencies of the executive branch and private organizations aimed at taking advantage of the provisions of the Final Act to expand East-West economic cooperation and to promote a greater interchange of people and ideas between East and West.”
1991—Pub. L. 102–138, § 171(2), which directed the striking out of “the first one to be submitted six months after June 3, 1976” after “report”, was executed by striking that language after “report,” to reflect the probable intent of Congress.
Pub. L. 102–138, § 171(1), substituted “an annual report” for “a semiannual report”.
