AdvaMed Statement on House Proposed Continuing Resolution

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Advanced Medical Technology Association (AdvaMed) issued the following statement from President and CEO Scott Whitaker on the proposed continuing resolution in the U.S. House:

“AdvaMed applauds and supports passage of the pending continuing resolution that includes a two-year suspension of the medical device tax. First payments on the medical device tax are due to be made in just 12 days, and it is imperative that Congress act now before this devastating tax takes hold.

“We strongly support this effort to provide immediate relief and believe that, in the long run, full repeal is the best way to provide the longer-term certainty this industry needs in order to make commitments to multi-year initiatives that support jobs and innovations for patients. We encourage Congress to move quickly on this important interim step.”
