"The currency date for each section of the United States Code is displayed above the text of the section.

Public Laws are initially published chronologically in pamphlet form.
Later compiled as U.S. Statutes at Large
Statutes at Large (Stat.) and Public Laws (P.L.) - "Every public and private law passed by Congress is published in the Statutes at Large in order of the date it was enacted into law. The laws are arranged by Public Law number and are cited by volume and page number. Also included in the United States Statutes at Large are concurrent resolutions, proclamations by the President, proposed and ratified amendments to the Constitution, and reorganization plans. Until 1948, treaties and international agreements approved by the Senate were also published in the Statutes at Large."
