Global Hemp President Eric Pollitt’s lobbying for an industrial hemp research bill has finally paid off as the Illinois Senate passed HB 5085 on Monday, May 19th, with all voting in favor of the bill. Two prior Industrial Hemp bills, one in 1999 and another in 2000, passed the House and Senate, yet were vetoed by Governor Ryan, who stated a lack of private funding for research led to his veto of the second bill. Mr. Pollitt worked with State Representative David Leitch (R-Peoria, IL) to create the bill, and HB 5085 acts as a research bill, one that will allow the industry to move forward.
