Burley co-op may gamble on hemp

By Janet Patton, Lexington Herald-Leader

The Burley Tobacco Growers' Cooperative, a cornerstone of Kentucky farming for decades, is at a crossroads. A former chairman has proposed dissolving the organization, formed in 1921, and distributing its almost $35 million in assets to members.

But few on the current 22-member board seem willing to go along with the proposal from Roger Quarles, co-op chairman from 2005-2012. "If we can't think of a way to go forward, we should dissolve," Quarles said. Instead, the board has voted to jump into another crop in a big way.

Commentary: USMCA is a Win for America

Personal Commentary by Congressman James Comer
U.S. Representative, 1st District of Kentucky

President Trump, along with leaders from Mexico and Canada, signed the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) on November 30, 2018. Since then, Canada began the process to vote on implementing the legislation in May of this year and Mexico's Senate overwhelmingly ratified the agreement shortly after in June.

However, months continue to pass without its ratification by the United States Congress. When the House of Representatives returns in September, nothing is more important than Speaker Pelosi bringing the USMCA up for a vote. Our manufacturers and producers are relying on this significant tri-country pact for the stability needed in the agricultural and manufacturing sectors.
