TechNet Statement on Retirement of Senator Orrin Hatch
Washington, D.C. — TechNet, the national, bipartisan network of innovation economy CEOs and senior executives, today responded to Senator Orrin Hatch’s (R-UT) announcement that he will retire at the end of the 115th Congress. The following statement can be attributed to Linda Moore, President and CEO of TechNet:
“For over four decades, Senator Hatch has been a giant of the U.S. Senate, and his impact on our nation will extend far beyond his retirement at the end of this year. Among his many achievements, he has helped reshape America’s judiciary, led the passage of major tax reform legislation, tackled immigration issues with both economic sense and a deep appreciation for how immigration benefits our country, and championed countless other policies to promote American innovation. As Senator Hatch winds down his career, we look forward to working with him on finishing strong and adding to an already impressive legacy that was further burnished by his work on tax reform in 2017.”
