Effective December 1, the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA) was recodified at 50 U.S.C. §§ 3901 - 4043 from its former location at 50 U.S.C. app. §§ 501 - 597b. Recent structural changes to the U.S. Code eliminated the Appendix to Title 50, with several provisions transferring into the body of Title 50. Historically, the 1940 edition of the U.S. Code established the Appendix to Title 50 for emergency-related or temporary executive branch documents and law. However, because of the enduring nature of several laws contained in the Appendix, the Office of the Law Revision Counsel concluded that it would “improve the organizational structure” of the U.S. Code to move these sections into Title 50. Importantly, the law was not amended, so there are no substantive changes to the SCRA from this recodification. To assist clients in tracking these changes, BuckleySandler attorneys have prepared this chart mapping the old sections of the SCRA with their new locations in Title 50.
