New version of the US Code online

Here is an announcement from the Office of Law Revision Counsel of the United States House of Representatives of a new version of the United States Code.

From: Seep, Ralph, Office of Law Revision Counsel
Subject: OLRC website Beta 2 announcement

A little over a year ago, the Office of the Law Revision Counsel of the United States House of Representatives released beta version 1 of a new website for the Office and the United States Code. Beta version 2 is now being released for testing and feedback. It is available at http://uscodebeta.house.gov. You are invited to test version 2 and give us your comments about its features, content, and ease of use.

Version 2 includes the following new features:

  • Default searching and browsing in the most current version of the Code (formerly USCprelim)
  • Ability to search and browse previous versions of the Code back to the 1994 main edition (either separately or concurrently)
  • Internal links to referenced Code sections

    External links to referenced Public Laws and Statutes at Large citations (back to 1951) will be included in the near future. Since the new release is a beta, there will be a period of testing for both new and existing features. Following this period, which is anticipated to last several months, beta version 2 will replace the existing US Code website at http://uscode.house.gov.

    Your comments and questions about version 2 are welcome and can be sent to uscode@mail.house.gov. Thank you for your assistance.

    Law Revision Counsel
