Thank you for your email asking me to cosponsor the Industrial Hemp Farming Act. I appreciate knowing of your support for this bill.
Thanks to your letter and the letters of others, I have asked my staff to take a closer look into this legislation. It is very helpful to hear your comments, particularly as I hold conversations with my Senate colleagues on issues regarding hemp.
I hope you will continue to send your observations and thoughts my way.
All my best,
Jeffrey A. Merkley
United States Senator
