He also works on public policy issues involving Congress and federal agencies on issues related to immigration, agriculture, insurance, clean energy, health care, environment and transportation. He serves as labor and employment law counsel to AmericanHort, the horticulture industry’s national trade organization.

Regelbrugge is the senior vice president of industry advocacy and research for AmericanHort. Regelbrugge has more than 28 years of horticulture industry experience and is an expert on governmental affairs, immigration law and horticultural research.
