Committee Assignments


Jaime Herrera Beutler was first elected to Congress at the age of 31 to represent Southwest Washington’s 3rd District.  Jaime was raised in Southwest Washington and brings legislative experience, an independent voice and a desire to serve her home community to Washington, DC.

At 35 years old, Jaime is one of the youngest women currently serving in the U.S. Congress.  National Journal included her on their list of “The Top 25 Most Influential Washington Women Under 35.” She is the first Hispanic in history to represent Washington state in the U.S. House of Representatives, and was named to MSNBC’s “Top 10 Latino Politicians to Watch.”  She is also chair of the Congressional Caucus for Women’s Issues.  The first bill she introduced in Congress was to cut the salaries of Members of Congress, the President and the Vice President by 10%.

Growing up, Jaime graduated from Prairie High School and was member of the Prairie’s women’s basketball team. She also participated in activities like 4-H, fishing at Battle Ground Lake on opening day and swimming in the Lewis River.  Jaime has a deep appreciation for what makes Southwest Washington special.

Jaime attended the University of Washington, earning her Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications. During that time she held temporary positions in both the Washington State Senate and in Washington, D.C. at the White House Office of Political Affairs.  Those opportunities sparked her interest in government and serving the people of Washington through public office.

From 2005-07 Jaime worked in Washington D.C. as a Senior Legislative Aide for Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Spokane). Jaime served as the Congresswoman’s lead advisor on health care policy, education, veterans’ and women’s issues.  In 2007, she was appointed to serve as a State Representative to Washington state’s 18thLegislative District by Democrat and Republican County Commissioners from Clark and Cowlitz Counties.  She was reelected by 60% of the voters in 2008, and served in that position until being elected to Congress in 2010.

Jaime has developed a record of working productively with both Republicans and Democrats on important issues. During her first term in Congress she introduced the “Small Business Opportunities Act” — a bipartisan reform to the federal contracting process that increases opportunities for thousands of America’s small businesses.  This initiative was included in the 2013 defense authorization bill that the President signed into law on January 2, 2013.  She also spearheaded a bipartisan effort to protect Southwest Washington manufacturing and forest-product industry jobs from a costly government regulation known as the “Forest Roads Rule.”  As a State Representative, her first bill – a bipartisan proposal to give tax relief to business owners serving in the military – was signed into law.  Through these efforts she’s learned the value of common sense solutions that work for people instead of partisan bickering.

Jaime is proud to represent her home of Southwest Washington in the U.S. Congress. She’s working hard to find solutions that will help restart Southwest Washington’s economy. Jaime is very clear about her mission: “I will do everything I can to get the folks of Southwest Washington back to work.”

Jaime and her husband Daniel Beutler reside in Camas.
