Washington, DC –Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) was awarded the Medical Device Manufacturers Association (MDMA) Chairman’s Award at a meeting in Washington, D.C. last night in recognition of her support of med-tech innovation and improving patient care.

“As the Representative of numerous medical device firms, this award and recognition for my work to fight Obamacare’s medical device tax is truly an honor,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “The medical device industry does critical work to improve healthcare for families across my district and across our nation, in addition to creating jobs in the North Country economy. The medical device tax is a burdensome tax that hurts our healthcare and kills jobs and I will continue to lead the fight in Congress to repeal it.”

Since arriving in Congress, Rep. Stefanik has been a leader in the fight against the medical device tax and helped pass legislation that was signed into law that suspended the tax for two years.
