Thank you for sharing your support for the Industrial Hemp Farming Act. Hearing from you helps me better represent Middle Tennessee.
In this difficult economic climate, farmers need all the help they can get. This bill which would permit agricultural hemp farming has been referred to the House Judiciary Committee. I look forward to reviewing the recommendations of my colleagues should this bill come to a vote on the House floor.
Again, thank you for contacting me. Please do not hesitate to call on me again if I may be of assistance to you or your family.
Stay in touch,
Member of Congress
