16 U.S.C. 470f.

Pub. L. 89–665, title I, § 106, Oct. 15, 1966, 80 Stat. 917; Pub. L. 94–422, title II, § 201(3), Sept. 28, 1976, 90 Stat. 1320.

The words “historic property” are substituted for “district, site, building, structure, or object that is included in or eligible for inclusion in the National Register” because of the definition of “historic property” in section 300308 of the new title.
