Production subsidy

The Agricultural Marketing Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture proposes a Paper and Paper-Based Packaging Promotion, Research and Information Order. Orders of this sort are generally intended to promote a product, with the funding for the promotional program being raised through imposts on domestic production and imports. These orders go into effect only if approved through a referendum among the domestic and foreign producers of the item in question.
The purpose of the program would be to maintain and expand markets for paper and paper-based packaging. The program would be financed by an assessment on paper and paper-based packaging manufacturers (domestic producers) and importers and would be administered by a board of industry members appointed by the Secretary of Agriculture. The assessment rate would initially be $0.35 per short ton.
The program would be implemented if it is favored by a majority of current US manufacturers and importers voting in the referendum who also represent a majority of the volume of paper and paper-based packaging represented in the referendum who, during a representative period determined by the Agriculture secretary, were engaged in the manufacturing or importation of paper and paper-based packaging into the United States. The voting period is October 28 through November 8, 2013. To be eligible to vote, current paper and paper-based packaging domestic manufacturers and importers must have domestically manufactured and/or imported 100,000 short tons or more of paper and paper-based packaging during the representative period from January 1 through December 31, 2012.
