Tell Congress: Repeal the Medical Device Tax & Spur MedTech Innovation

On January 4, 2017, Reps. Erik Paulsen (R-Minn.) and Ron Kind (D-Wis.) reintroduced legislation to fully and permanently repeal the 2.3% medical device excise tax that was enacted as part of the Affordable Care Act.
 
The Protect Medical Innovation Act of 2017, H.R. 184, has already garnered significant bipartisan support with over 251 cosponsors, including 24 members of the California congressional delegation.
 
Given the medical device excise tax's disproportionate impact in California - our state's 1,714 medical technology companies employing 75,000 people rank the state first in the country in medical tech employment - CLSA has been a leading advocate in support of its full repeal.

On behalf of California's life sciences innovators, a sector with over 3,000 firms employing nearly 300,000 people, California Life Sciences Association joins the rest of the biomedical innovation ecosystem in supporting the full repeal of the device tax, which would jeopardize our position as a global leader in medical technology innovation.

TAKE ACTION NOW: Call on Congress to immediately eliminate this costly tax on innovation. Your voice is critical to nurturing the vibrancy of California's life sciences sector, which relies heavily on research and development that would be negatively impacted by H.R. 184.

Send a letter, tweet or call your member of Congress and tell them to finally eliminate the medical device tax for good.
