Thank you for contacting me to express your support for the Industrial Hemp Farming Act (H.R. 1866). It is good to hear from you.
As you know, this bill would exclude industrial hemp from the definition of marijuana and grant states the authority to regulate the commercial production of hemp for industrial and agricultural purposes. H.R. 1866 has been referred to the House Energy and Commerce and Judiciary Committees.
Thank you again, Constituent, for contacting me. It is an honor to serve you in Congress. If I may be of service to you in the future, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Member of Congress
