Kentucky Hemp Bill Back on Track, Scheduled for Vote

FRANKFORT, KY — A bill that would allow Kentucky farmers to grow industrial hemp if federal restrictions are removed has been scheduled for a vote in a House committee on Wednesday, and is expected to advance.

But now, instead of requesting a university-led study of hemp, committee chair Tom McKee, D-Cynthiania, has announced that the measure is scheduled for a vote Wednesday and is expected to pass — and that he intends to vote for it himself.
