Kentucky House Speaker Declares Hemp Bill Dead for the Session
House Speaker Greg Stumbo announced Monday that hemp legislation won't be going any further this legislative session.
The Courier-Journal reports the bill has been assigned to the Rules Committee. Stumbo told the newspaper "the calendar won't allow us to consider any bills that are in the Rules Committee."
Monday is the 26th day of the 30 day session. Monday and Tuesday are devoted to bills that have cleared both chambers, while the final two days of the session are reserved for overriding any gubernatorial vetoes.
