The Runaway and Homeless Youth Act

In 2017, the Office of Law Revision Counsel reorganized existing provisions of the United States Code into a new Title 34, Crime Control and Law Enforcement. No statutory text was repealed or amended in the reorganization. The impetus for the Title 34 project was to gather in one title the growing body of law bearing on crime control and law enforcement. Those provisions were previously scattered in various parts of the United States Code. Title 42, The Public Health and Welfare, where the Runaway and Homeless Youth authorizing legislation was previously classified, is an enormous title containing a hodge-podge of various provisions. Title 34 was created to provide a place in the Code where current and future provisions related to crime control and law enforcement could be better organized and maintained.
