Denver, CO -- (ReleaseWire) -- 08/11/2016 --Advocacy group, A Just Cause, announces this Thursday's, August 11, 2016 segment of AJC Radio's, "Spotlight on Capitol Hill" will shine the spotlight on Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R - UT) (http://www.AJCRadio.com, 8-10 PM ET).

"Spotlight on Capitol Hill focuses on the importance of supporting our elected officials. Each show is dedicated to discussing key initiatives of members of Congress and the specific work being done to help the American people," explains Lamont Banks, Executive Director of A Just Cause. "This unique radio segment gives us the opportunity to discuss significant issues and important legislation with listeners across America," adds Banks.

According to his official website, "The values Rep. Chaffetz embraces are reflected in the issues he has prioritized during the course of his service. He ran for office on the promise of returning to the core conservative principles of accountability, strong national defense, limited government and fiscal discipline... Foreign policy and national security are a key focus of his work on both the Oversight and previously on the Homeland Security Committee. He has made numerous trips overseas to investigate issues ranging from embassy overspending to foreign aid waste. His trip to Libya in the weeks following the September 11, 2001 attack became the impetus for a broader investigation and the appointment of a Select Committee."

Congressman Chaffetz has participated in, and introduced, legislation involving families, education, healthcare, taxes and government accountability. He continues to be an advocate for the American people while serving his fourth term in the US House of Representatives in the 114th Congress. He became the Chairman of the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee in January 2015, and also serves on the House Judiciary Committee. "I have always been committed to fiscal discipline, limited government, accountability and a strong national defense. These principles are the foundation upon which I build policy in the United States Congress," said Congressman Chaffetz." (http://www.jasonforcongress.com/legislative_highlights)
