Bill to legalize industrial hemp use clears state Senate committee
On October 27, 2015
The Berks County-rooted effort to bring industrial hemp farming to Pennsylvania is now primmed for consideration by the state Senate.
The bill cleared an early hurdle Tuesday, winning unanimous approval from the chamber’s Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee.
“This is a big first step for us,” said state Sen. Judy Schwank, a Ruscombmanor Township Democrat and the bill’s sponsor.
