Farm Bill Update: One Step Closer

U.S. Hemp Roundtable

We are one step closer to permanent legalization of hemp. Today, members of the House/Senate conference committee took time to sign off formally on the report which includes all of the hemp provisions from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s Hemp Farming Act.

 We expect the conference report to be filed in the House and Senate tomorrow (Tuesday), and after a few days of floor discussion and debate, we expect full passage by the end of the week. Of course, the only thing that’s predictable in DC is unpredictability. But stay tuned to this space for more updates. .
