Title Fifty-ONE of the U.S. Code

On December 20, 2010, President Barak Obama signed Public Law 111-314, the new Title 51 of the United States Code, “The National and Commercial Space Programs”. Since the 1960s space legislation has been enacted into Title 15, Commerce and Trade, Title 42, Public Health and Welfare, and Title 49, Transportation. The new law does not provide for any new programs or repeal any old ones, but rather it purports to gather,reorganize and restate the existing laws into a more coherent structure. Volume 37 of the Journal of Space Law is devoted to the new legislation. RL
