U.S. Hemp Roundtable Advances Agenda With Congressional Leaders
U.S. Hemp Roundtable members met in Washington, D.C., on Sept. 22 with members of Congress, including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. McConnell’s wife, former Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, also attended a dinner with U.S. Hemp Roundtable members and lawmakers
Attendees said the Lobby Day meetings were fruitful, with a lively brainstorming session about potential legislative initiatives. The U.S. Hemp Roundtable reported that Roundtable members discussed easing regulatory burdens on hemp farmers in the 2023 Farm Bill, as well as the regulation of CBD in food. McConnell has long supported the hemp industry, given Kentucky’s significant agricultural sector.
