    The Senate has opened a door to new opportunities for Kentucky agriculture. After extensive collaboration with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle, we passed one of my top Kentucky priorities for the year – a Farm Bill containing my legislation to legalize the production of industrial hemp.

  • Legislators meet before new session begins

    This week, the General Assembly wraps up what it calls the interim, a six-and-a-half-month period that brings House and Senate committees together in a less-hectic atmosphere to review issues affecting the state.

    Although no laws are passed, this time is still critical to the legislative process.  It would be difficult if not impossible for legislators to write and then debate potentially hundreds of bills each winter without the information and public testimony gathered during the summer and fall.
