105 STAT. 2568 PROCLAMATION 6301—JUNE 7, 1991 customs duties, and in order to correct a technical error that was made in incorporating such tariff modifications in the HTS, I find it appropriate to modify further the provisions of the HTS modified by Proclamation No. 6179. 6. Section 604 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (19 U.S.C. 2483), requires the President to embody in the HTS the substance of the relevant provisions of that Act, and of other acts affecting import treatment, and actions taken thereunder, including the removal, modification, continuance, or imposition of any import restriction. NOW, THEREFORE. I, GEORGE BUSH, 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 the provisions of section 103B of the 1949 Act, as added by section 501 of the 1990 Act, additional U.S. note 2 to chapter 17 of the HTS, and section 604 of the Trade Act of 1974, do hereby proclaim: (1) In order to establish special import quota programs pursuant to the provisions of subsections (a)(5)(F) and (n) of section 103B of the 1949 Act, as amended, subchapter III of chapter 99 of the HTS is hereby modified by adding U.S. note 6 as provided for in Annex I to this proclamation. (2) The Secretary of Agriculture and the Secretary of the Treasury may promulgate such regulations as are necessary or appropriate to carry out the special import quota programs established by paragraph (1). (3) Subheadings 9903.52.00 through 9903.52.20 are inserted in subchapter III of chapter 99 of the HTS, as provided in Annex I to this proclamation, and shall be effective with respect to articles entered, or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, as of the dates and under the terms set forth in Annex I. (4) Additional U.S. note 3 to chapter 17 of the HTS and subheading 1701.91 of the HTS are modified as provided in Annex II to this proclamation. (5) The provisions of this proclamation shall become effective on the day following the date of signature. (6) Those provisions of proclamation No. 6179 of September 13, 1990, which are inconsistent with the provisions of Annex II of this proclamation are hereby superseded to the extent of such inconsistency. IN WITNESS WHEREOF. I have hereunto set my hand this seventh day of June, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and ninety-one, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and fifteenth. GEORGE BUSH ANNEX I MODMCATIONS TO THE HARMONIZED TARIFF SCHEDULE OF THE UNITED STATES WITH RESPECT TO SPECIAL IMPORT QUOTAS FOR UPLAND COTTON 1. The following new U.S. note is inserted in numerical sequence in subchapter III of chapter 99 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States: "6. Special limited global import quotas for upland cotton.—The provisions of this note apply beginning August 1, 1991, to imports of upland cotton as provided in subheadings 9903.52.00 through 9903.52.20.
