Thank you for getting in touch with me to express your views about the Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2011 (H.R. 1831). It's good to hear from you.
I appreciate knowing of your support for this legislation. One of my guiding principles here in the Senate is that Marylanders have a right to know, to be heard, and to be represented. Information from people like you is essential if I am to be not only the Senator from Maryland, but also the Senator for Maryland. Knowing of your views will be very helpful to me.
Thanks again for contacting me. If I can be of assistance in the future, or if there is any other federal legislation on which you would like to comment, please feel free to let me know.
Barbara A. Mikulski
United States Senator
