New United States Code Website

The Office of the Law Revision Counsel of the United States House of Representatives is beta-testing a new website for the United States Code:

Some key features of the new website are:

  • A new search engine for Code data
  • An expanding "Table of Contents" style browse of the Code
  • A simple search facility for quickly accessing specific Code sections or performing simple word or phrase searches
  • An advanced search facility for sophisticated searching of Code content using delimiters such as field or Code hierarchy restrictions, Boolean logic, and case sensitive searches
  • An improved display of search results and Code documents
  • Cite Checker, a new tool that enables quick checking of specific Code sections for recent amendments
  • Easy access to the USCprelim, an advance posting of the next online version of the Code
  • New explanatory material about the Code and the functions of the Office

Prospective features include:

  • Ability to search previous versions of the Code
  • Ability to search USCprelim
  • Enhanced internal and external link
The United States Code is "a consolidation and codification by subject matter of the general and permanent laws of the United States".
