Update 2 2/13: The Senate bill (SB955) has passed the House! Off to the Governors office!
Update 2/13: Hopefully the last update prior to announcing the Governor signing the bill into law! The house will vote on SB955 today. SB955 is identical to HB1277 that was already passed by the house. Virginia law dictates that the SAME bill needs to be accepted by both the house and senate. While the language was the same in both versions, the same bill needs to be accepted. So, this should be the last step.
Update: Virginia Industrial Hemp bills passed both the House and Senate! More to come!
