ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the views of Neal Gillen, executive vice president and general counsel for the American Cotton Shippers Association, on the World Trade Organization (WTO) ruling allowing most of Brazil's claims against the U.S. cotton program. The ruling, particularly a requirement that Step 2 payments comply with the WTO's edict by July 1, 2005 leaves the U.S. Government with three avenues available, according to Gillen. He mapped out the challenge of compliance in an address to the annual meeting of the Texas Cotton Association recently in Austin.
