There is big news from Frankfort.

It looks like the push for legalized hemp in Kentucky is moving forward again.

Supporters were outraged last week when there was no vote in the House Agriculture and Small Business Committee.

But now the Committee's Chairman Tom McKee says there will be a vote.

He says a meeting is set for Wednesday morning at 8:00.

He even says he'll vote for it himself.

The proposed bill has already passed the full Senate and now needs House approval, and the Governor's signature.

Backers like the business potential of hemp.

Critics, including State Police, say it will be easily confused with marijuana.
