John Shadegg was elected U.S. Representative from Arizona's third congressional district in 1994. He served eight terms, and was chairman of the conservative House Republican Study Committee. Shadegg is a veteran of the Arizona Air National Guard, and served as a special assistant attorney general in Arizona. A graduate of the University of Arizona, where he also received a law degree, he was the founding director of the Goldwater Institute for Public Policy.
As author of the Enumerated Powers Act, recently adopted as a rule in the House of Representatives, Congressman Shadegg during his sixteen years in Congress stood for the idea of constitutional, limited government. Drawing upon his leadership experience in Congress, Mr. Shadegg will suggest ways in which the national legislature can return the country to the place where government is limited, and citizens are more free.
