Wyden Statement on Chairman Hatch’s Retirement

Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today issued the following statement regarding the retirement of Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch, R-Utah:


“Senator Hatch has been not only a colleague but a friend who has served the people of Utah with great passion and dedication. This basketball player from Oregon can tell you it takes real endurance for a boxer like Senator Hatch to be in the ring for four decades. I wish nothing but the best for Senator Hatch and his wife Elaine as he continues to engage in public service.”
