                                 A BILL


 
   To prohibit the importation into the United States of sugar from 
                 countries that import sugar from Cuba.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the 
United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. PROHIBITION.

    Notwithstanding any other provision of law, sugars, syrups, and 
molasses, that are the product of a country that the President 
determines has imported sugar, syrup, or molasses that is the product 
of Cuba, shall be entered, or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, 
into the customs territory of the United States, unless the condition 
set forth in section 2 is met.

SEC. 2. CONDITION FOR REMOVAL OF PROHIBITION.

    The prohibition set forth in section 1 shall cease to apply to a 
country if the country certifies to the President that the country will 
not import sugar, syrup, or molasses that is the product of Cuba until 
free and fair elections, conducted under the supervision of 
internationally recognized observers, are held in Cuba. Such 
certification shall cease to be effective if the President makes a 
subsequent determination under section 1 with respect to that country.

SEC. 3. REPORTS TO CONGRESS.

    The President shall report to the Congress all determinations made 
under section 1 and all certifications made under section 2.

SEC. 4. REALLOCATION OF SUGAR QUOTAS.

    During any period in which a prohibition under section 1 is in 
effect with respect to a country, the President may reallocate to other 
countries the quota of sugars, syrups, and molasses allocated to that 
country, before the prohibition went into effect, under chapter 17 of 
the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States.
