Congressman James Comer (R-KY) represents the 1st district of the State of Kentucky in the U.S. House of Representatives. He entered the business world in 1993, when he took out a loan to purchase his first farm. Today, Comer Family Farms, is one of the largest in south central Kentucky. Congressman Comer served for six terms as a member of the Kentucky State House until 2011, when he was elected to serve as Kentucky’s Commissioner of Agriculture. As a fierce advocate for hemp, he recently introduced a new iteration of the Industrial Hemp Farming Act, as H.R. 3530. Congressman Comer urges those who support legalization of industrial hemp to call upon representatives to support the bill. He welcomes listeners to contact him with questions and suggestions.
