280. Editorial Note

On July 30 the House passed H.R. 7030 by a vote of 194 to 44. On August 1 the Senate Finance Committee approved amendments to the House bill and ordered them reported in a revised Senate bill (S. 1635). The bill was not reported to the Senate before Congress adjourned August 2. The committee version provided that any increase in United States consumption above 8,300,000 tons be supplied 55 percent by domestic producers, 25.6 percent by Cuba, and 19.4 percent by full-duty countries on the basis of their sales of sugar in the United States market during the past 4 years. It also extended the revised Sugar Act to 1962, instead of 1960.
