(a) In general–[edit]

The first section and section 2 of Public Law 93–435 (48 U.S.C. 1705, 1706) are amended by inserting “the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands,” after “Guam,” each place it appears.

(b) References to date of enactment–[edit]

For the purposes of the amendment made by subsection (a), each reference in Public Law 93–435 to the “date of enactment” shall be considered to be a reference to the date of the enactment of this section.

This work is in the public domain in the United States because it is a work of the United States federal government (see 17 U.S.C. 105).
