The Budget Control Act of 2011, part of the compromise worked out by President Obama and Congress to avoid a default on the government’s debt, Aug. 2, is creating a new sense of urgency among commodity organizations. The Act sets up a select committee of 12 members of Congress to develop a plan for reducing government spending by $1.2 trillion by Dec. 31. The National Cotton Council’s Gary Adams talks about what the new law could mean for cotton and cotton producers in this video from the American Cotton Producers/Cotton Foundation meeting in  Corpus Christi, Texas.
