Farm Bill Effect Impact On U.S. And Global Hemp Markets

16th District Congressman Adam Kinzinger says, "This legislation is a big win for the 16th District of IL and marks the first time since 2002 that a new Farm Bill will be enacted in the same year that the old one expired".

In fact, the California Department of Public Health issued a new state policy in July that prohibits hemp-derived CBD in food products, aligning with the FDA's stance.

With 60 votes in the Senate required and a narrow Republican majority, the bill needs support from some Democratic senators in order to reach the finish line. The compromise also increases acreage in the Conservation Reserve Program and includes an act sponsored by Sen. Trump expressed support for the legislation Tuesday and said he expects to sign it into law.

Sen. Roy Blunt conducts a news conference after the Republican Senate Policy luncheon in the Capitol, Jan. 9, 2018. As a result, Americans are likely to see more diversity in crop production, more help to organic farmers and farmers markets, and more experimentation with advanced cropping and grazing methods that improve soil and water quality.

"From providing a safety net for farmers and ranchers, to supporting dairy farmers, to implementing important conservation provisions and promoting precision agriculture, this Farm Bill shows our farmers and ranchers that we stand with them, we support them, and we want them to succeed,"Sen".

Legalized industrial hemp has been a longstanding goal for its advocates, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who helped secure the provisions in the farm bill, saying even under the old, limited rules, his home state of Kentucky saw a $16 million boost to its economy from hemp a year ago.

"It's good news for our farmers", McMorris Rodgers said.

The language of the bill had not been released as of Wednesday evening.

U.S. Rep. Jason Lewis, a Republican, voted against the bill, though Minnesota's other GOP lawmakers, U.S. Reps. John Hoeven said in a statement.

After two years of work on this particular bill and with a House-Senate compromise worked out earlier this month, Thune hopes that the bill will soon be signed into law. The legislation will give a boost to farmers harmed by Trump's trade wars, especially with China. Thune said the bill heavily emphasizes crop insurance.

"At a time when farm income is down and our growers are struggling, industrial hemp is a bright spot of agriculture's future", Mr. McConnell said Tuesday. House Agriculture Chairman Mike Conaway, R-Texas, and the president had hailed the plan as a way to bring more Americans out of poverty, but critics argued that it would cut $20 billion from the food stamp program - known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) - and would unfairly deny benefits to the needy.

Republican Rep. -elect Dusty Johnson, who will take office in January, told Forum News Service Tuesday he doesn't think the package is flawless, but "It's an improvement over what we've had over the last five years".
