Title 3--
The President
                Proclamation 6740 of October 13, 1994

 

To Establish Tariff-Rate Quotas on Certain Wheat

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                1. In accordance with section 22 of the Agricultural 
                Adjustment Act, as amended (``the Act'') (7 U.S.C. 
                624), the Secretary of Agriculture has advised me that 
                he has reason to believe that wheat, classified in 
                heading 1001 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the 
                United States (HTS), is being or is practically certain 
                to be imported into the United States under such 
                conditions and in such quantities as to render or tend 
                to render ineffective, or materially interfere with, 
                the price support, payment, and production adjustment 
                program for wheat conducted by the Department of 
                Agriculture.

                2. Based upon this advice, I directed the United States 
                International Trade Commission (``the Commission'') to 
                initiate an investigation with respect to this matter 
                under section 22 of the Act.

                3. Based on the investigation and report of the 
                Commission, I have determined that certain articles of 
                wheat are being imported or are practically certain to 
                be imported into the United States under such 
                conditions and in such quantities as to materially 
                interfere with the price support, payment, and 
                production adjustment program for wheat conducted by 
                the Department of Agriculture. Further, I have 
                determined that the imposition of the tariff-rate 
                quotas, as hereinafter proclaimed, is necessary in 
                order that the entry, or withdrawal from warehouse for 
                consumption, of such articles will not materially 
                interfere with the price support, payment, and 
                production adjustment program for wheat conducted by 
                the Department of Agriculture. I have also determined 
                that imports of wheat from Canada have increased 
                significantly as a result of a substantial change in 
                the wheat support programs of the United States and 
                Canada.

                4. Section 604 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (19 
                U.S.C. 2483), authorizes the President to embody in the 
                HTS the substance of relevant provisions of that Act, 
                of other Acts affecting import treatment, and of 
                actions taken thereunder.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, WILLIAM J. CLINTON, President of the 
                United States of America, acting under the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States, including but not limited to section 22 
                of the Agricultural Adjustment Act, as amended, and 
                section 604 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended, do 
                proclaim that:

                    (1) In order to establish tariff-rate quotas on 
                imports of certain wheat, subchapter IV of chapter 99 
                of the HTS is modified as set forth in the Annex to 
                this proclamation.
                    (2) For durum wheat entered during a specified 
                quota year, other than qualifying goods of Mexico or 
                seed wheat, the aggregate quantity exceeding 
                300,000,000 kilograms but not exceeding 450,000,000 
                kilograms is subject to the in-quota rate of duty 
                established in such Annex and the aggregate quantity 
                exceeding 450,000,000 kilograms is subject to the over-
                quota rate of duty established in such Annex. For other 
                wheat and meslin entered during a specified quota year, 
                other than qualifying goods of Mexico or white winter 
                wheat, the aggregate quantity exceeding 1,050,000,000 
                kilograms is subject to the over-quota rate of duty 
                established in the Annex.
                    (3) The modifications made by this proclamation 
                shall be effective with respect to articles entered, or 
                withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, on or after 
                September 12, 1994, and before the close of September 
                11, 1995, unless expressly suspended, modified, or 
                terminated.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 
                thirteenth day of October, in the year of our Lord 
                nineteen hundred and ninety-four, and of the 
                Independence of the United States of America the two 
                hundred and nineteenth.
