Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik sent a letter to House and Senate Leadership last week along with a bipartisan group of the New York Congressional delegation urging the repeal of the medical device tax. This comes ahead of the expiration of the medical device tax suspension occurring on December 31, 2019.

“New York’s workforce boasts a significant amount of medical technology manufacturers which contribute significantly to our economy and improve the lives of countless patients,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “With the upcoming expiration of the medical tax suspension, the bipartisan New York delegation urges House and Senate leadership to take swift action to ensure patients, the health care industry, and our state economy are not negatively impacted. Legislation to repeal this overburdensome tax has broad bipartisan support, and I look forward to working with leadership to deliver this result to the North Country and New York State as a whole.”
