Note to the PressPlease include the following statement from State Rep. Chris Judy (R-Fort Wayne) in your coverage of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana’s ruling regarding hemp. Judy voted for SEA 516, and supports this decision overturning portions of the new law per the court ruling:

 

STATEHOUSE (Sept. 19, 2019) ­­­– “It’s important that hemp is treated like any other regulated agricultural crop in Indiana, just as Congress intended with the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill. Ideally, this ruling will provide guidelines to the rest of the country as states begin developing or amending their current regulatory structures. If Indiana is going to continue to attract substantial investments and jobs into the state like the potential $52 million project in Jeffersonville, our laws and regulations must treat hemp like any other federally regulated agricultural crop. I look forward to ensuring the entire hemp market remains open to Hoosier farmers, small businesses and other entrepreneurs.”
