Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler (WA-03) Monday announced she has earned the “Friend of Farm Bureau” award for her ongoing support of Southwest Washington’s farmers and ranchers in Congress.
Herrera Beutler received an official notice from the American Farm Bureau that she received this distinction. The Friend of Farm Bureau award is given to members of Congress who have supported farm-friendly legislation and who were nominated by their respective state Farm Bureaus.
“It’s an honor to be recognized as a ‘Friend of Farm Bureau’ for my work in Congress to support farmers and ranchers throughout Southwest Washington,” Herrera Beutler said. “From oyster growers and cranberry farmers in Pacific County, to the berry and tree fruit farmers throughout our region, I’m going to continue fighting for solutions that help them succeed, because when they are successful, everyone in our region reaps the rewards. I’ll always be an unwavering friend to our Southwest Washington farmers and ranchers and will fight for their priorities in Congress.”
