Governor Kay Ivey of Alabama signed SB 46 into law on May 17th, 2021, establishing a framework for the emerging agriculture industry in the state. Alabama’s lawmakers have been discussing establishing a framework for the emerging agriculture industry for a long time but recently, the measure had more momentum. The Senate approved the bill after a filibuster by the Republicans that delayed the final votes.
As passed by the Senate, the legislation would establish the framework for the emerging agriculture industry, eventually launching a regulated commercial market, allowing people to apply for licenses in Alabama. A special commission would be in charge of licensing and regulating these businesses, with sales expected to begin in late-2022.
“Although it might take time to be fully functional, Alabama finally has a comprehensive program for the emerging agriculture,” says Thomas Howard.
The emerging agriculture industry laws and regulations are constantly changing and getting redrafted, which creates amounts of uncertainty around industry lovers and business owners in the field all around the United States. So if you want to know how to get licensed in Virginia, New York or Michigan you need to have the right information at hand.
