No vote needed for Cotton Research and Promotion Act

Based on a USDA review, a referendum is not needed among producers and importers on the Cotton Research and Promotion Act.

The review, conducted every five years by Agricultural Marketing Service, is required by 1990 amendments to the Cotton Research and Promotion Act, which eliminated producer assessment refunds and the assessment levied on imported cotton and the cotton content of imported products.

Since the establishment of the program, a referendum has not been instituted.
