House Industrial Hemp Legislative Alert

Jamie Comer is the new Agricultural Commissioner and he is following through on his promise to try and get Industrial Hemp in Kentucky. If you don’t know about Industrial Hemp and would like more information please check out our resources HERE and HERE.

There is a Senate Bill for Industrial Hemp (SB 61), but there is not a House Bill. Comer intends to approach this from all angles, so he is going to the Capitol this WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 11TH, 2012to speak to the House Agricultural Committee about getting Industrial Hemp Legislation introduced and passed.  Nest week he will be supporting Industrial Hemp in the Senate and we will send an alert about that at a more appropriate time. For now this is the action you need to take.
