House Passes Bill to Name Federal Courthouse After Former Senator Hatch

Today, the House passed legislation to name the federal courthouse in Salt Lake City in honor of former Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT). Following the bill’s passage, Rep. Stewart issued the following statement: 

“Senator Hatch served the people of Utah with great honor and dedication for 42 years in the U.S. Senate. He and his wife, Elaine, made great sacrifices for our country, for which I am forever grateful. Senator Hatch had an unparalleled impact on the judiciary and it’s perfectly appropriate that we name the new courthouse in Salt Lake City after my dear friend.” – Rep. Chris Stewart
