    (WASHINGTON, D.C.) - U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), a current member and former Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement today after the White House announced that President Obama will soon sign an executive order prohibiting discrimination by federal contractors based on sexual orientation:

    "While the specifics of this executive order are not yet clear, I believe it must include the same religious protections that are included in the bipartisan Employment Non-Discrimination Act that passed the Senate. ENDA strikes a good balance to ensure that discrimination based on sexual orientation will not be tolerated, but also that one of our nation's fundamental freedoms -- religious freedom -- is still upheld. The same must be said for any Obama Administration initiative on this issue."
