Thank you for contacting my office. I appreciate hearing from you regarding your views on H.R. 1866, the Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2009 . This bill was introduced in the 111th Congress and it has not yet been reintroduced in the 112th Congress. When it does, I will certainly keep your thoughts in mind.
