Hm, I haven't heard of that, so I'm not totally sure. I did just a real quick Google search and wasn't able to find anything about a hop quarantine this year, but I'm not sure how reliable that is.
It's set up to protect the three primary hop growing states for the most part as hops account for millions of dollars to those states economies. Unfortunately, there have been a few instances where 'dirty' planting stock was sent from PNW to folks establishing new farms in the east in recent years. http://usahops.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=news&pageID=2
