History[edit]

From the first edition of the United States Code in 1926[2] to 1947, Title 6 was a non-positive law title. Title 6 was enacted a positive law title on July 30, 1947 by Public Law 80-280 (ch. 390, 61 Stat. 646). Title 6 had the title heading "Official and Penal Bonds" prior to the its enactment as positive law and after its 1947 enactment as positive law until June 6, 1972 when it was given a new heading, "Surety Bonds," by Public Law 92-310 (86 Stat. 202). When Title 31 was enacted as positive law by Public Law 97-258 on September 13, 1982, the remaining provisions of Title 6 were transferred to Chapter 93 of Title 31. Section 5(b) of Public Law 97-258 officially repealed Title 6 (96 Stat. 1068, 1085).

The first edition of the U.S. Code or supplement thereof, in which Title 6 appeared with the heading of "Domestic Security," was the second supplement of the 2000 Edition of the U.S. Code.[3][4] This supplement was published in 2004 and contained "the additions to and changes in the general and permanent laws of the United States enacted during the One Hundred Seventh Congress, Second Session." [5] At the end of 107th Congress, the only law editorially classified to Title 6 was the Homeland Security Act of 2002.[6]
