Bipartisan Letter to Speaker Ryan on Medical Device Tax Repeal – October 2017

October 24, 2017

The Honorable Paul D. Ryan
Speaker of the House
U.S. House of Representatives
Washington, DC 20515

Dear Speaker Ryan,

We write to urge you to work with the Committee on Ways and Means to ensure inclusion of medical device tax relief in legislative vehicles being considered by the House before the end of the year. The suspension of the medical device tax expires on January 1, 2018, and is critical to the health and sustainability of this vital American manufacturing industry that this tax is not once again applied to its products. This looming tax increase will impact medtech innovation and job creation, threatening this industry and the constituents we serve.
