Senator Lisa Murkowski recently sent a letter to President Obama at the request of Alaska’s peony growers and the American Cut Flower Association. It asks the President to support the American cut flower industry (and Alaska’s peonies!) by making it a White House policy to use only American flowers at the White House. It’s been the White House policy for many years to showcase American food and wine at White House State Dinners, but there’s never been such a policy for American flowers. Senator Murkowski thinks it’s high time that changed.
