840. Section 506 is codified at 2 U.S.C. § 661e (Supp. IV 1992). Section 13201(a) of the Budget Enforcement Act of 1990 created the new title V on credit reform, including section 507, and repealed what used to be section 506. See infra p. 713. Before enactment of the Budget Enforcement Act of 1990, section 506 read as follows:

technical amendment 

Sec. 506. (a) Section 105 of title 1, United States Code, is amended by striking out “June 30” and inserting in lieu thereof “September 30”.

(b) The provisions of subsection (a) of this section shall be effective with respect to Acts making appropriations for the support of the Government for any fiscal year commencing on or after October 1, 1976.

841. This is so in the original; the word “and” should not be here.[1]

842. Section 13201(a) of the Budget Enforcement Act of 1990 (see infra p. 713) created a subsection (a) here, even though it created no subsection (b) below.

843. This subsection heading is so in the original. It should not be here, as there is no subsection (b).[2]

844. Section 502(9) defines “Director” as “the Director of the Office of Management and Budget.” See supra p. 284.

845. Section 502(3) defines “loan guarantee.” See supra p. 280.
