8 112. Statutes at large; contents; admissibility in evidence.

The Administrator of General Services shall cause to be compiled, 201 edited, indexed, and published, the United States Statutes at Large, which shall contain all the laws and concurrent resolutions enacted during each regular session of Congress; all proclamations by the President in the numbered series issued since the date of the adjournment of the regular session of Congress next preceding; and also any amendments to the Constitution of the United States proposed or ratified pursuant to article V thereof since that date, together with the certificate of the Administrator of General Services issued in compliance with the provision contained in section 106b of this title. In the event of an extra session of Congress, the Administrator of General Services shall cause all the laws and concurrent resolutions enacted during said extra session to be consolidated with, and published as part of, the contents of the volume for the next regular session. The United States Statutes at Large shall be legal evidence of laws, concurrent resolutions, treaties, international agreements other than treaties, proclamations by the President, and proposed or ratified amendments to the Constitution of the United States therein contained, in all the courts of the United States, the several States, and the Territories and insular possessions of the United States. (Oct. 31, 1951, ch. 655, $ 3, 65 Stat. 710.)

8 112b. United States international agreements; transmission to Con- 201.5

gress. (a) The Secretary of State shall transmit to the Congress the text of any international agreement (including the text of any oral international agreement, which agreement shall be reduced to writing), other than a treaty, to which the United States is a party as soon as practicable after such agreement has entered into force with respect to the United States

Contains changes through Pub. L. 97-69, enacted October 26, 1981. Since some provisions of the most recently enacted statutes may receive slightly different editorial treatment in the codification process, and since a few stylistic changes have been made in this Manual to achieve more convenient adaptation to Senate needs, some pro forma deviations from the exact format of the United States Code may be noted.

but in no event later than sixty days thereafter. However, any such agreement the immediate public disclosure of which would, in the opinion of the President, be prejudicial to the national security of the United States shall not be so transmitted to the Congress but shall be transmitted to the Committee on Foreign Relations of the Senate and the Committee on International Relations of the House of Representatives under an appropriate injunction of secrecy to be removed only upon due notice from the President. Any department or agency of the United States Government which enters into any international agreement on behalf of the United States shall transmit to the Department of State the text of such agreement not later than twenty days after such agreement has been signed.

(b) Not later than March 1, 1979, and at yearly intervals thereafter, the President shall, under his own signature, transmit to the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the chairman of the Committee on Foreign Relations of the Senate report with respect to each international agreement which, during the preceding year, was transmitted to the Congress after the expiration of the 60-day period referred to in the first sentence of subsection (a), describing fully and completely the reasons for the late transmittal.

(c) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, an international agreement may not be signed or otherwise concluded on behalf of the United States without prior consultation with the Secretary of State. Such con. sultation may encompass a class of agreements rather than a particular agreement.

(d) The Secretary of State shall determine for and within the executive branch whether an arrangement constitutes an international agreement within the meaning of this section.

(e) The President shall, through the Secretary of State, promulgate such rules and regulations as may be necessary to carry out this section. (Aug. 25, 1972, Pub. L. 92-403, § 1, 86 Stat. 619; June 15, 1977, Pub. L. 95-45, § 5, 91 Stat. 224; Oct. 7, 1978, Pub. L. 95-426, $ 708, 92 Stat. 993.)

Committee on the Judiciary of the Senate a number of bound copies of each equal to ten times the number of members of such committeess), and one bound copy of each for the use of each committee of the Senate (July 30, 1947, ch. 388, 61 Stat. 640.)

[ocr errors]

203 $ 212. Additional distribution at each new Congress.

In addition the Superintendent of Documents shall, at the beginning of the first session of each Congress, supply to each Senator in such Congress, who may in writing apply for the same, one copy each of the Code of Laws of the United States, the Code of Laws relating to the District of Columbia, and the latest supplement to each code: Provided, That such applicant shall certify in his written application for the same that the volume or volumes for which he applies is intended for his personal use exclusively: And provided further, That no Senator during his term of service shall receive under this section more than one copy each of the volumes enumerated herein. (July 30, 1947, ch. 388, 61 Stat. 640.)
