7 U.S. Code § 9019 - Transition assistance for producers of upland cotton
It is the purpose of this section to provide transition assistance to producers of upland cotton in light of the repeal of section 8713 of this title, the inapplicability of sections 9016 and 9017 of this title to upland cotton, and the delayed implementation of the Stacked Income Protection Plan required by section 1508b of this title, as added by section 11017 of this Act.
For the 2014 crop of upland cotton, the Secretary shall provide transition assistance, pursuant to the terms and conditions of this section, to producers on a farm for which cotton base acres were in existence for the 2013 crop year.
The Secretary may not make transition assistance payments for a crop year under this section before October 1 of the calendar year in which the crop of upland cotton is harvested.
Sections 1308 through 1308–3 of this title, as in effect on September 30, 2013, shall apply to the receipt of transition assistance under this section in the same manner as such sections applied to section 8713 of this title.
