Export Grape and Plum Act

7 U.S.C. § 591: US Code – Section 591: Standards of export; establishment; shipping without certificate forbidden; hearings

This description of the Export Grape and Plum Act tracks the language of the U.S. Code, except that, sometimes, we use plain English and that we may refer to the “Act” (meaning Export Grape and Plum Act) rather than to the “subchapter” or the “title” of the United States Code.
