Oklahoma may be moving one step closer to expanding their hemp growing & hemp harvesting programs. House Bill 2628, authored by State Rep. Jon Echols, R-Oklahoma City. was green-lighted by The Senate Agriculture Committee on Monday, April 1, 2019. Then in the same day, Senate Bill 868, authored by State Sen. Lonnie Paxton, R-Tuttle, was given a unanimous recommendation for passage in The House Agriculture and Rural Development Committee.
The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 made it legal to grow & harvest hemp in the state of Oklahoma, The two new bills look to expand the pilot programs, and looks to add 3 times the number of acres farmed in 2019 then there was in 2018. Interest is up among farmer’s looking to grow the crop.
