AMENDMENTS

1986 - Par. (7). Pub. L. 99-570, which directed that "for a term

of one year and a fine of $5,000, or both" be substituted for "for

a term of six months and a fine of $500, or both", was executed by

$500, or both" as the probable intent of Congress.

PURPOSE OF 1986 AMENDMENT

Section 4217 of Pub. L. 99-570 provided in part that amendment of

par. (7) of this section was to "enhance the ability of tribal

governments to prevent and penalize the traffic of illegal

narcotics on Indian reservations".
