Dear Mr. Swift,
Thank you for your recent emails and phone call. I apologize for my delayed response. As I am sure you can understand I have been hard at work trying to find a compromise on the state budget.
I have read your proposed resolution on industrial hemp and found it very interesting. There are many facts about industrial hemp that I was not aware of, including its use as an agricultural and industrial product. Currently my office and I are concentrating on resolving the budget issues facing Michigan. This will be my main focus until a comprehensive compromise has been reached. I will review your resolution again after this happens. Thank you again for bringing this to my attention. If there is anything else I can assist you with please do not hesitate to contact my office.
