Import quota

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Commodity Credit Corporation announced on July 24, 2014 a special import quota for upland cotton that permits importation of a quantity of upland cotton equal to one week's domestic mill use. The quota, which allows the importation of 14,741,821 kilograms (67,709 bales) of upland cotton, is being carried out under the authority of a 2008 law (PL 110-246) requiring that a special import quota be determined and announced immediately if, for any consecutive 4-week period, the U.S. Far East price exceeds the prevailing world market price.
