That would be the United States Statutes at Large, of which the relevant volume and page ("40 Stat. 450", volume 40, page 450) is on Wikisource but has not been transliterated and proofread. Other than that, if you can read English from old-fashioned dead trees, you should be good to go. Int21h (talk) 07:33, 3 November 2013 (UTC)


Section 264 of the act mistakenly placed most of the state of Idaho (south of Salmon River (Idaho)) in UTC−06:00 CST Central Standard Time, but was amended in 2007 by Congress to UTC−07:00 MST Mountain Standard Time.[2] MST was observed prior to the correction. The Standard Time Act itself ( only had 5 sections and did not define time zones, so which act is being referred to here? XinaNicole (talk) 16:06, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

They're probably referring to 15 U.S.C. § 264. The history for that section shows it was added by 42 Stat. 1434 (1923), and it was amended by 62 Stat. 646 (1948) and 121 Stat. 599 (2007). The reference given does not support the above statement, though. Int21h (talk) 19:55, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
