This version of the Code of the Federated States of Micronesia is an unofficial legislative version of the 1997 Code, as updated by the Office of the Legislative Counsel of the Congress of the Federated States of Micronesia, with assistance by the LIS Project. This version is updated through Public Law 12-12 (August 19, 2001).
The first official version of the code was done in 1982 (see, "Introduction to Original 1982 Code [with PL 2-48]") and the latest official revision of the code was undertaken in 1997 (see, "Introduction to 1997 edition, FSM Code").
Users may utilize this unofficial legislative version of the Code as a useful research tool, but should cite to the source laws set forth in the source following each Section of the Code, if citing to a provision that was amended after Public Law 9-164 (May, 1997). Public Law 9-164 was the last law codified in the official 1997 FSM Code.

Users should also check if the portion of the Code that they are referencing has been amended by any public law after Public Law 12-12 by checking the 12th and 13th Congress Public Law Tables on the website of the FSM Congress.

Format editing was done by the LIS Project to improve the readability of the Code. Additional cross references and links have been added throughout this version of the FSM Code by the LIS Project to assist in more efficient research.
Certain word processing characters such as dashes and quotation marks may not have translated cleanly into "html" format and may appear as underline marks and periods, respectively. Users of this Code are cautioned about such translation problems and should refer to the Disclaimer page of this web site (FSM Congress) for more information.
