US Code expands beyond 50 titles


Since 1926 the United States Code has comprised of 50 titles compiling and codifying the general and permanent federal law, but with the enactment of Public Law 111-314 on December 18, 2010 a new title 51, National and Commercial Space Programs, has been added. In addition the U.S. House of Representatives Office of Law Revision Counsel has produced draft texts to expand the U.S. Code further and add titles 52-55 and to reorganize some existing titles.
