Guest Speaker:  U.S. Congressman David Schweikert, R-Arizona, 6th District

Congressman David Schweikert will join us and provide a federal update. Congressman David Schweikert was raised in Arizona and has deep ties to Arizona’s 6th District, which encompasses the northern Phoenix metropolitan area including the cities of Phoenix, Scottsdale, and portions of Cave Creek and Carefree. Among his legislative achievements, David helped block the largest tax increase in U.S. history in 2010.  He authored key portions of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (JOBS Act), which passed with bipartisan support in 2012 and was subsequently signed by the President.  This piece of legislation reversed decades of regulatory burden, opening new capital markets to America’s entrepreneurs. In addition to his subcommittee chairmanship on the House Space, Science and Technology subcommittee on Environment, David is a member of the House Committee on Small Business, co-chairman of the House Tunisian Caucus, the House Access to Credit Caucus, the Valley Fever Task Force and serves on the House Down Syndrome Caucus and Maker’s Caucus, which focuses on the policy impacts of 3-D printing technology.
