Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch will present his fourth annual Utah Economic Forum on Tuesday at the Utah Valley University Orem campus.

This year's forum, "Fixing America's Tax Code and Saving Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security for Future Generations," will feature Lawrence Lindsey. Lindsey served on the Council of Economic Advisers in both Bush administrations and as a special assistant to the president for policy development for President George H.W. Bush.

Hatch said the focus of this year's forum will be on controlling entitlement spending and reforming the nation's tax code so it can no longer be likened to a noxious weed that is choking off economic growth and injecting uncertainty into the marketplace.

The forum is free and open to the public. No registration is required. It will run from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Utah Valley University's Ragan Theater in the Sorenson Student Center. For more information call 801-375-7881 or 801-524-4380.
