House Agriculture Committee says "yes" to hemp

“I’m voting for jobs,” says Chairman McKee

The House Agriculture Committee on Wednesday, March 6, 2013, voted 24-1 in favor of industrial hemp legislation.  Chairman Tom McKee (D-Cynthiana) made remarks prior to the vote stating “I’m voting for jobs and I’m voting for agriculture because if we truly see hundreds or even thousands of acres of industrial hemp grown, we are going to add to the receipts we now have.  It’s a crop we need to pursue.”
