Historical and Revision Notes

Derivation

U.S. Code

Revised Statutes and Statutes at Large

     5 U.S.C. 638 (as applicable to promotion).      Jan. 16, 1883, ch. 27, § 7 (as applicable to promotion), 22 Stat. 406.

     The words "That after the expiration of six months from the passage of this act" are omitted as executed. The words "in the competitive service" are substituted for "in either of the said classes now existing, or that may be arranged hereunder pursuant to said rules" because of the definition of "competitive service" in section 2102. In the second sentence, the words "the provisions of this title governing the competitive service" are substituted for "this act".

     Standard changes are made to conform with the definitions applicable and the style of this title as outlined in the preface to the report.
