Bankhead Cotton Act, 1934
   The Bankhead Cotton Act was a supplement to the Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1933 introduced by William B. Bankhead and passed in 1934 to establish a national quota of cotton production in order to raise prices and to establish a tax to be imposed on any cotton produced in excess of individual quotas by licensed growers. A similar measure was introduced for tobacco. The act was repealed in 1936 after the Supreme Court had declared the Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1933 unconstitutional.
