Codification

Subsec. (i) of this section amended section 711(22) of former Title 31, Money and Finance. Subsec. (i) was originally enacted as subsec. (f) of this section, and was redesignated as subsec. (i) by Pub. L. 95-128, Sec. 108(2).

November 28, 1990, referred to in subsec. (p)(1), was in the original "the date of the enactment of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1990", and was translated as meaning the date of enactment of the Cranston-Gonzalez National Affordable Housing Act, Pub.
