Senator Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, the senior Republican in the United States Senate, congratulated the Utah State Legislature for funding a new software facility at Hill Air Force Base in Utah’s annual budget.
“I commend the Utah State Legislature for working to provide critical funding for a new software facility at Hill Air Force Base. This facility will not only bring jobs to Utah and positively impact STEM initiatives in our state; it will also strengthen our national security by allowing the skilled workforce at Hill to develop and refine software for key weapons programs, such as the F-35. This represents a sound investment in our military’s future—an investment that will pay dividends for Utah’s families for decades to come. I extend my gratitude to the men and women of Hill Air Force Base and our state lawmakers for their superlative work on this issue.”
