The following statement can be attributed to U.S. Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Suzanne P. Clark:
"Senator Orrin Hatch dedicated his life to serving his country, guided by wisdom, common sense, and principle. A prolific and effective legislator, he shaped some of the most consequential public policy in modern history that will continue to positively impact Americans’ lives for many years to come. He was also a champion on business priorities, frequently partnering with the U.S. Chamber to advance trade, tax reform, healthcare, and other policies to strengthen the economy and expand opportunity.
"He will be remembered not only for the work he did, but the manner in which he did it: with civility, collegiality, and unwavering commitment to serving others.
"All of us at the U.S. Chamber are grateful for his legacy and extend our deepest condolences to his family and friends."
