    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That, in order to maintain the ability of United States agriculture to remain viable and competitive in domestic and international markets, the Secretary of Agriculture, consistent with the obligations of the United States to limit agricultural export subsidies as set forth in the Uruguay Round Agreement and notwithstanding any other provision of law, shall--

      (1) make available and aggressively utilize in each fiscal year the funds and commodities of the Commodity Credit Corporation in the maximum amounts allowed under the Agreement for the export enhancement program, the dairy export incentive program, the cottonseed oil assistance program, and the sunflowerseed oil assistance program; and

      (2) make available additional funds and commodities in each fiscal year in an amount equal to the total of the reductions below the amounts made available in fiscal year 1994 for the programs described in paragraph (1) that are made as a condition of compliance with the budgetary outlay or volume restrictions on agricultural export subsidies under the Agreement, in addition to any funds or commodities that may be authorized, appropriated, or otherwise made available, for authorized export promotion, foreign market development, export credit guarantee, and international food assistance programs, for commodity purchases under the Emergency Food Assistance Program, and to promote the development, processing, commercialization, and marketing of products resulting from alternative uses of agricultural commodities, including vegetable oil.
