The words "of the United States under the provisions of this Act or the provisions of any other law" are omitted as surplus.

The words "this section" are substituted for "this prohibition" because of the restatement.

References in Text

Subsection (j), referred to in subsec. (a)(3), probably should be a reference to subsec. (k). Prior to amendment by Pub. L. 116–283, such reference was to subsec. (k), and at that time, this section contained two subsecs. (k). Section 845(a)(8) of Pub. L. 116–283 redesignated the subsec. (k) relating to limitation on certain procurements application process as (j), but the reference in subsec. (a)(3) is probably to the subsec. (k) relating to implementation of auxiliary ship component limitation, which was not redesignated.

The date of the enactment of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020, referred to in subsec. (k), is the date of enactment of Pub. L. 116–92, which was approved Dec. 20, 2019.
