MDMA Statement on Senate Passage of Medical Device Tax Repeal

 

 WASHINGTON, DC -- Mark Leahey, President and CEO of the Medical Device Manufacturers Association (MDMA), issued the following statement today regarding the passage of repeal of the medical device tax in the United States Senate:

 

“Over ten years ago MDMA and our members engaged Congress to stop the medical device tax from punishing patient care and job creation, and today marks the culmination of this important work.

“MDMA thanks Majority Leader McConnell, Minority Leader Schumer, Speaker Pelosi and Minority Leader McCarthy for their bipartisan work to put an end to this tax on innovation.

“Now that both chambers of Congress have passed a repeal of the device tax, we look forward to the president’s signature so that America’s innovators can continue to lead the world in developing the cures and therapies of tomorrow.”
