Any legislation signed into law automatically expires on the 20th anniversary of the signing. To extend this, the law may be approved, unaltered, by a new combined approval of both houses of congress and the signature of the president on a date at least ten years after the original approving signature. With this extension the law will expire on the 20th anniversary of the new signing.
Any legislation that is a modification of or references other original legislation, expires with the original legislation.
