Schumer Supports Hemp Growers

U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer was recently in Schoharie County to hear from hemp growers who are hoping to get the federal government to lift restrictions on banks so they can provide services to growers. Schumer tells the Daily Gazxette they are asking the Federal Reserve and the Officer of the Comptroller of the Currency to create guidelines so banks won’t have to worry about violaing federal laws. Schumer also says he wants to see the state’s hemp industry grow into creating other businesses.
