Oklahoma House Approves Industrial Hemp, Bill Now in Senates Hands

An industrial hemp pilot program has unanimously passed through the Oklahoma House.

HB 2913, by Rep. Mickey Dollens and Majority Floor Leader Jon Echols, expands Oklahoma’s agricultural options and creates the Oklahoma Industrial Hemp Agricultural Pilot Program.

“The potential provided in this bill is limitless,” said Dollens, D-Oklahoma City. “In the long term, industrial hemp could become a source of steady, recurring revenue for Oklahoma. Once we analyze results from this pilot program, our state can be on track to commercialize the product and strengthen our economic portfolio.”

The program will be headed by the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food, and Forestry. It will allow universities or farmers to contract with universities to cultivate certified hemp seed for research and development for industrial uses.

The bill now moves to the Senate for consideration.
