Congresswoman Herrera Beutler is one of the co-chairs of the Congressional Cut Flower Caucus that was established in 2014 to help raise the profile of and address issues facing America’s flower farmers. The congresswoman represents Washington State’s 3rd District in southwest Washington that includes Woodland, where Holland America Flowers grows its flowers.
