URGE CONGRESS TO COMPLETE FY19 APPROPRIATIONS

FIGHT FOR FASTER MEDICAL PROGRESS
Help Repeal the Medical Device Tax
In January 2018, Congress acted on a bipartisan basis to temporarily suspend the medical device excise tax, the second consecutive two-year suspension of this tax. Legislation pending in Congress would repeal the tax once and for all. Bipartisan opposition to the medical device tax stems from its negative impact on research and development. Medical devices - diagnostics, joint replacements and other prosthetics, pacemakers, and more - play a crucial role in health and healthcare. It is time to end this tax, leveling the playing field for medical device R&D. Weigh in with your Congressional delegation now!
CULTIVATE CHAMPIONS FOR NIH
In order to enhance our understanding of disease and discover life-saving breakthroughs, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) relies on the support of Congress. Encourage your elected officials to take a leadership role in the Senate and House NIH Caucuses!
