Lucien Norbert Nedzi (born May 28, 1925) is a former Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives from the State of Michigan. Nedzi is of Polish descent.

Nedzi was born in Hamtramck, Michigan, a city surrounded by Detroit. He graduated from the University of Michigan in 1943. In 1949, he attended the University of Detroit School of Law. He earned a J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School in 1951, and was admitted to the Michigan bar in January 1952.

From 1944 to 1946, he served in the United States Army during World War II as an infantryman in the Philippines, and in the Corps of Engineers in Japan. From 1946 to 1953, he was in the active United States Army Reserve, during which time he served in the Korean War.

Nedzi was elected as a Democrat from Michigan's 1st congressional district to the 87th United States Congress in a special election in 1961 to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of United States Representative Thaddeus M. Machrowicz. He was re-elected in the 1962 election and two years later he was elected from the 14th district and every two years after that until he declined to seek re-election in the 1980 election. In all, he served from November 7, 1961 to January 3, 1981.

Nedzi chaired the House Select Committee on Intelligence, known as the Nedzi Committee, from February 1975 until he controversially resigned in June; the successor was the Pike Committee. In addition, Nedzi chaired the Joint Committee on the Library from 1973 to 1979 and the Committee on House Administration from 1979 to 1981.

Nedzi currently lives in McLean, Virginia.
