Cotton Board Rules and Regulations: Adjusting Supplemental Assessment on Imports (2008 Amendments)

Action

Final Rule.

Summary

The Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) is amending the Cotton Board Rules and Regulations by increasing the value assigned to imported cotton for calculating supplemental assessments collected for use by the Cotton Research and Promotion Program. An amendment is required to adjust the assessments collected on imported cotton and the cotton content of imported products to be the same as those paid on domestically produced cotton. In addition, AMS is removing Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) numbers that were absorbed into other HTS categories since the last assessment adjustment.

Executive Order 12866 Back to Top

This rule has been determined to be not significant for the purpose of Executive Order 12866; and therefore, has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

This proposed rule has been reviewed under Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform. It is not intended to have retroactive effect. This proposed rule would not preempt any state or local laws, regulations, or policies, unless they present an irreconcilable conflict with this rule.

The Cotton Research and Promotion Act (7 U.S.C. 2101-2118) (“Act”) provides that administrative proceedings must be exhausted before parties may file suit in court. Under Section 12 of the Act, any person subject to an order may file with the Secretary a petition stating that the order, any provision of the plan, or any obligation imposed in connection with the order is not in accordance with law and requesting a modification of the order or to be exempted therefrom. Such person is afforded the opportunity for a hearing on the petition. After the hearing, the Secretary would rule on the petition. The Act provides that the District Court of the United States in any district in which the person is an inhabitant, or has his principal place of business, has jurisdiction to review the Secretary's ruling, provided a complaint is filed within 20 days from the date of the entry of ruling.

Background Back to Top

The Cotton Research and Promotion Act Amendments of 1990 enacted by Congress under Subtitle G of Title XIX of the Food, Agriculture, Conservation, and Trade Act of 1990 (101) on November 28, 1990, contained two provisions that authorized changes in the funding procedures for the Cotton Research and Promotion Program.

These provisions are: (1) The assessment of imported cotton and cotton products; and (2) termination of the right of cotton producers to demand a refund of assessments.

This rule increases the value assigned to imported cotton in the Cotton Board Rules and Regulations (7 CFR 1205.510(b)(2)). The total value is determined by a two-part assessment. The first part of the assessment is levied on the weight of cotton produced or imported at a rate of $1 per bale of cotton, which is equivalent to 500 pounds, or $1 per 226.8 kilograms of cotton. The second value is used to calculate the supplemental assessments on imported cotton and the cotton content of imported products. Supplemental assessments are levied at a rate of five-tenths of one percent of the value of domestically produced cotton, imported cotton, and the cotton content of imported products. The supplement assessment is combined with the per bale equivalent to determine the total value and assessment of the imported cotton or cotton-containing products.

The Cotton Research and Promotion Rules and Regulations provide for assigning the calendar year weighted average price received by U.S. farmers for Upland cotton to represent the value of imported cotton. This is so that the assessment on domestically produced cotton and the assessment on imported cotton and the cotton content of imported products is the same. The source for the average price statistic is Agricultural Prices, a publication of the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Use of the weighted average price figure in the calculation of supplemental assessments on imported cotton and the cotton content of imported products will yield an assessment that is the same as assessments paid on domestically produced cotton.

The current value of imported cotton as published in the Federal Register (68 FR 27898) for the purpose of calculating supplemental assessments on imported cotton is $0.8267 cents per kilogram. Using the Average Weighted Priced received by U.S. farmers for Upland cotton for the calendar year 2007, the new value of imported cotton is $0.9874 cents per kilogram or $0.1607 cents per kilogram more than the previous value.

An example of the complete assessment formula and how the figures are obtained is as follows:

One bale is equal to 500 pounds.

One kilogram equals 2.2046 pounds.

One pound equals 0.453597 kilograms.

One Dollar Per Bale Assessment Converted to Kilograms

A 500-pound bale equals 226.8 kg. (500 × .453597).

$1 per bale assessment equals $0.002000 per pound (1/500) or $0.004409 per kg. (1/226.8).

Supplemental Assessment of 5/10 of One Percent of the Value of the Cotton Converted to Kilograms

The 2007 calendar year weighted average price received by producers for Upland cotton is $0.496 per pound or $1.093 per kg. (0.496 × 2.2046).

Five tenths of one percent of the average price in kg. equals $0.005465 per kg. (1.093 × .005).

Total Assessment

The total assessment per kilogram of raw cotton is obtained by adding the $1 per bale equivalent assessment of $0.004409 per kg. and the supplemental assessment $0.005465 per kg. which equals $0.009874 per kg.

The current assessment on imported cotton is $0.008267 per kilogram of imported cotton. The amended assessment is $0.009874, an increase of $0.001607 per kilogram. This increase reflects the increase in the Average Weighted Price of Upland Cotton Received by U.S. Farmers during the period January through December 2007.

Since the value of cotton is the basis of the supplemental assessment calculation and the figures shown in the right hand column of the Import Assessment Table 1205.510(b)(3) are a result of such a calculation, the figures in this table have been revised. These figures indicate the total assessment per kilogram due for each HTS numbers subject to assessment.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection informed USDA that several numbers listed in the Import Assessment Table are no longer used or have been combined with other HTS numbers. The HTS numbers that have been removed from the Import Assessment Table are:

A proposed rule was published on July 24, 2008, with a comment period of July 24 through September 22, 2008 (73 FR 43166). AMS received one comment from a cotton producer association. The comment indicated support of the proposed amendment stating that it would increase the value assigned to imported cotton, and that it is important that domestically produced and imported cotton be assessed equally. The comment also indicated support for removing the HTS numbers that were absorbed into the other HTS categories since the last assessment adjustment.

Regulatory Flexibility Act and Paperwork Reduction Act Back to Top

In accordance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) [5 U.S.C. 601-612], AMS has examined the economic impact of this rule on small entities. The purpose of t he RFA is to fit regulatory actions to the scale of businesses subject to such action so that small businesses will not be unduly or disproportionately burdened. The Small Business Administration defines, in 13 CFR Part 121, small agricultural producers as those having annual receipts of no more than $750,000 and small agricultural service firms (importers) as having receipts of no more than $6,500,000. An estimated 13,000 importers are subject to the rules and regulations issued pursuant to the Cotton Research and Promotion Order. Most are considered small entities as defined by the Small Business Administration.

This rule would only affect importers of cotton and cotton-containing products and would raise the assessments paid by the importers under the Cotton Research and Promotion Order. The current assessment on imported cotton is $0.008267 per kilogram of imported cotton. The amended assessment is $0.009874, an increase of $0.001607, which was calculated based on the 12-month average of monthly weighted average prices received by U.S. cotton farmers. The calculation, and, thus the increase, is dictated by the Cotton Research and Promotion Rules and Regulations, 7 CFR 1205.510. Section 1205.510, “Levy of assessments”, indicates that “the rate of the supplemental assessment on imported cotton will be the same as that levied on cotton produced within the United States.” In addition, section 1205.510 provides that the 12-month average of monthly weighted average prices received by U.S. farmers will be used as the value of imported cotton for the purpose of levying the supplemental assessment on imported cotton.

Under the Cotton Research and Promotion Program, assessments are used by the Cotton Board to finance research and promotion programs designed to increase consumer demand for Upland cotton in the United States and international markets. In 2007, producer assessments totaled $44 million and importer assessments totaled $30.4 million. According to the Cotton Board, should the volume of cotton products imported into the U.S. remain at the same level in 2007, one could expect the increased assessment to generate approximately $5.9 million.

Importers with line items appearing on U.S. Customs and Border Protection documentation with value of the cotton contained therein results of an assessment of two dollars ($2.00) or less will not be subject to assessments. In addition, imported cotton and products may be exempt from assessment if the cotton content of products is U.S. produced or cotton other than Upland. Importers who import only products that are eligible to be labeled as 100 percent organic under the National Organic Program (7 CFR Part 205) and who are not a split operation, are exempt from payment of assessments.

AMS previously proposed to amend the Cotton Board Rules and Regulations, specifically to adjust the total rate of assessment per kilogram of imported cotton collected under the Cotton Research and Promotion Program, on January 12, 2005 (70 FR 2034). This proposed rule resulted from years of consultation with the industry. In the proposed rule, the total rate of assessment would have been calculated by adding together the $1 per bale equivalent assessment and the supplemental assessment, and adjusting the sum to account for the estimated amount of U.S. cotton contained in the imported textile products by the estimated average amount of U.S. cotton contained therein. On November 20,2006, however, AMS withdrew the proposed rule (71 FR 67072) based on a stakeholder comment questioning the data and the calculation of the proposed importer supplemental assessment. After receiving the comment and other available information, the agency did not believe that the proposed rule would achieve its intended objectives of effectiveness and efficiency. While AMS continues to evaluate this issue and garner additional stakeholders' input and economic data, AMS is amending the Cotton Board Rules and Regulations to adjust the importer supplemental assessment to be the same as that levied on domestic cotton producers.

The rule does not impose additional recordkeeping requirements on importers.

There are no Federal rules that duplicate, overlap, or conflict with this rule.

In compliance with Office of Management and Budget (OMB) regulations (5 CFR Part 1320) which implement the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35) the information collection requirements contained in the regulation to be amended have been previously approved by OMB and were assigned control number 0581-0093. This rule does not result in a change to the information collection and recordkeeping requirements previously approved.
