History

From its inception as part of the first issue of the U.S. Code in 1926, Title 14 has contained laws concerning the U.S. Coast Guard and been entitled "Coast Guard."[2] On August 4, 1949, the title was enacted as a positive law title.[3] [4] In the 115th Congress, H.R. 1726 was introduced to recodify Title 14. This bill was reported out by committee with a report in May 2017. This particular bill did not pass Congress but was included as Title I of S. 140 which became law in December 2018.[5] In the version of Title 14 published by the Office of the Law Revision Counsel, there are two tables at the beginning of the title, the first of which shows the re-designation of sections made by the 2018 recodification and the second of which shows disposition of non-positive law sections to the 1949 positive law title.[6] [7]
