Agricultural Marketing Service, USDA.
The Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) is making corrections to the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) by revising the authority citation for its regulation, Cotton Research and Promotion. In a final rule published in the Federal Register on June 24, 2015, changes were inadvertently made to remove a legal citation from the authority citation and to erroneously include an unnecessary authority citation after a section in AMS regulations. This document corrects those errors.
Effective August 16, 2017.

This document provides correcting amendments to the Cotton Research and Promotion Order (Order), found at 7 CFR part 1205, so that complete and appropriate authority is stated in the Order. In a final rule published in the Federal Register on June 24, 2015 (80 FR 36231), the rules and regulations regarding the procedures for the conduct of a sign-up period for eligible cotton producers and importers to request a continuance referendum on the 1991 amendments to the Order were revised. In that final rule, changes were inadvertently made to remove “7 U.S.C. 7401” from the authority citation. In addition, AMS discovered that an irrelevant authority citation “Authority: 7 U.S.C. 2101-2118” occurs after § 1205.29(c) in the CFR. This document corrects those errors by reinserting “7 U.S.C. 7401” into the authority citation that was removed from Title 7 of the CFR, part 1205, and by removing the unnecessary authority citation placed after § 1205.29(c) of the Order.
