(3)Prior to amendment by section 2(a) of Public Law 89-216, the first sentence of section 205(a) read as follows: “Sec. 205.

(4)Prior to amendment by section 2(b) of Public Law 89-216, section 205(b) read as follows: “(b) The Secretary shall by regulation make reasonable provision for the inspection and examination, on the request of any person, of the information and data contained in any report or other document filed with him pursuant to section 201, 202, or 203.”
(5)Prior to amendment by section 2(c) of Public Law 89-216, the second sentence of section 205(c) read as follows: “The Secretary shall make available without payment of a charge, or require any person to furnish, to such State agency as is designated by law or by the Governor of the State in which such person has his principal place of business or headquarters upon request of the Governor of such State, copies of any reports and documents filed by such person with the Secretary pursuant to section 201, 202, or 203, or of information and data contained therein.”

(7)Section 211 was added by section 3 of Public Law 99-216 (79 Stat. 888); section 111(a)(2)(D) of Public Law 93-406 (88 Stat. 852), Sept. 2, 1974, substituted “Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974” for “Welfare and Pension Plans Disclosure Act”.

(9)The U.S. Supreme Court, on June 7, 1965, held unconstitutional as a bill of attainder the section 504 provision which imposes criminal sanctions on Communist Party members for holding union office (U.S. v. Brown, 381 U.S. 437, 85 S. Ct. 1707).
(10)The following text shows changes made by Public Law 98-473, Oct. 12, 1984, 98 Stat. 2031, 2133, 2134 and by Public Law 100-182, Dec. 7, 1987, 101 Stat. 1266, 1269.

(11)This reprinted text of subsections (a), (b), and (c) of section 302 of the Labor Management Relations Act, 1947, does not reflect the amended text as originally found in the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act of 1959. It does, however, reflect the legislative changes which have occurred to those subsections from 1959 through October 1991.
(12)In subsection (b)(2) of section 302 of the Labor Management Relations Act, 1947, the phrase “section 10101 of Title 49” was substituted for the phrase “part II of the Interstate Commerce Act [49 U.S.C. 301 et. seq.]” by section 3(b) of Public Law 95-473, October 17, 1978.
(13)Subsection (c)(7)(C) of section 302 of the Labor Management Relations Act, 1947, was added by section 1 of Public Law 101-273, April 18, l990.
(14)Section 5(b) of the Labor Management Cooperation Act of 1978 probably means section 6(b) of Public Law 95-524 (92 Stat. 2020; 29 U.S.C. 175a note).
(15) Subsection (b)(7) of section 302 of the Labor Management Relations Act, 1947 was added by Public Law 91-86, Oct. 14, 1969; subsection (b)(8) by Public Law 93-95, Aug. 15, 1973; and subsection (b)(9) by section 6(d) of Public Law 95-524, Oct. 27, 1978.
