Orrin G. Hatch
Richard E. Winter '42 Student Center
29 March 2010
*. Orrin Grant Hatch received his Juris Doctorate in 1962 from the University
of Pittsburgh, graduating with honors. Hatch was a practicing attorney, first in
Pennsylvania then in Utah, until his election to the United States Senate. As Utah's
senator, he has continually fought an expanding federal bureaucracy and has been
at the forefront of the battle against burdensome and costly federal regulations. As
the most senior Republican member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senator
Hatch is a leader in the fight for tougher anti-crime laws, civil justice reform to
unclog the courts, and legislation to protect individual property rights. He also takes
an active role in the confirmation of all judicial nominations, including justices of the
Supreme Court. Senator Hatch is also the 2nd Ranking Republican on the Senate
Committee on Finance, where the Senator has been a leading advocate for policies to
encourage savings and investment, such as the Capital Formation Act of 1997, as well
as many other pro-growth tax bills. He also played a key part in enacting the welfare
reform bill, known as the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity
Reconciliation Act of 1996. Now in his sixth term as Utah's senator, Orrin Hatch has
championed a variety of legislative causes. Among his many achievements and
initiatives are the balanced budget amendment to the Constitution, the Religious
Freedom Restoration Act, the Omnibus Property Rights Act, the Antiterrorism and
Effective Death Penalty act, the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act, the
Dietary Supplements Health and Education Act, FDA reform, the Orphan Drug Act,
the Ryan White AIDS Care legislation, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Job
Training Partnership Act, the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), the
Patriot Act and the Serve America Act. Senator Hatch is also a member of the Senate
Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee, Senate Select Committee on
Intelligence, and the Joint Committee on Taxation. He also serves on the Board of
Directors for the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC.
