While a handful of colonial leaders recognized the grave implications of the Revenue Act, it was not until news of the Stamp Act reached the colonies that the seeds of rebellion were planted in the hearts and minds of the broader public.

 US - RESTRICTIONS ON THE IMPORTATION OF SUGAR (L/6631 - 37S/228)/B   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
The Sugar Act of 1948, including Title II, expired on 31 December 1974 and was not replaced by similar legislation.
