USDA Sets New Date for Comment Period on Hemp Rule

The USDA published an interim final rule for the Domestic Hemp Production program on Oct. 31, 2019. The USDA then opened a 60 day public comment period, which was originally scheduled to close on Dec. 30, 2019.

The agency has announced that the comment period will be extended to Jan. 29, 2020, to allow more time for people to formulate and submit comments.

Comments can be submitted via the Federal eRulemaking portal. More information about submitting comments can be found in the Federal Register. There is additional information about the Domestic Hemp Production Program on USDA’s website.

The text of the interim rule is available on the Federal Register.
