This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. Civility and solutions are the pillars that guide the Orrin G. Hatch Foundation, named in honor of the late U.S. Senator who served Utah for more than 40 years. Here’s Executive Director Matt Sandgren to share more.


The Orrin G. Hatch Foundation has made great strides this year. We have hosted multiple Senators, foreign policy experts, and even a Supreme Court Justice in discussions about the challenges facing our country and proposals to help us overcome them.

In addition, our Foundation’s thinkers have been published in The Wall Street Journal, on the RealClearPolitics website, and more, and just recently we launched the Senate Project—a nationally televised debate series that convenes leading politicians from both to find areas of common ground.

In the coming months, we will bring the Senate Project to Utah with a debate between two U.S. Senate heavyweights. And later this year, we’ll be publishing our annual Hatch Center Policy Review to make the definitive case for preserving the legislative filibuster to save the Senate as an institution.

What we have achieved over the last year is just a small taste of what’s to come.


The Hatch Foundation has big plans for next year and beyond to promote civility and solutions. To learn more, visit the Orrin Hatch Foundation website. I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, Speaking on Business.
