Kathy Szmuszkovicz Speaking on WGR Hemp Regulations Panel

Beveridge & Diamond's Managing Principal Kathy Szmuszkovicz will speak during Women in Government Relations (WGR)'s panel discussion, "Hemp Regulations and States Implementation," taking place on Thursday, January 23, from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. 

The panel will consider how states responded when USDA published its interim final rule on hemp production in October and what it means for the emerging industry and for local growers of hemp. The discussion will provide insights from USDA leadership on the interim final rule, as well as experts in the states implementing hemp programs.

In addition to Kathy Szmuszkovicz joining the panel discussion, B&D associate Hilary Jacobs (Washington, DC) will attend the program.
