Chapter 35--Panama Canal

Editorial note: Upon entry into force on October 1, 1979, of the Panama Canal Treaty of 1977, the United States relinquished and Panama assumed plenary jurisdiction over what was the Canal Zone. Pursuant to the Panama Canal Act of 1979, Pub. L. 96-70, the statute implementing the new treaty, the Canal Zone Government was disestablished and the Panama Canal Company was replaced by a new United States Government agency, the Panama Canal Commission, which will operate the waterway until the termination of the treaty on December 31, 1999. Many of the functions performed by the two former Canal agencies will not be undertaken by the Panama Canal Commission.
