Daniel Steven Holland (born November 5, 1955, in Tupelo, Mississippi) is a Democratic member of the Mississippi House of Representatives, representing the 16th district since 1985. He was also a contender for the Democratic nomination in Mississippi's 1st congressional district special election, 2008 but he lost the primary runoff to Travis Childers. He is of Dutch, Italian, and Native American descent.

Holland is the son of Judge Sadie Holland, who was allegedly targeted in the 2013 ricin letters incident. James Everett Dutschke, a suspect in the case, unsuccessfully ran against Holland in 2007.

In 2012, Holland submitted a Bill to the Mississippi Legislature to change the name of the Gulf of Mexico - for all official uses within the state - to the "Gulf of America".
