MITA Commends Senate Lawmakers for Voting to Repeal Device Tax as Part of End-of-Year Spending Package
Washington, DC, December 19, 2019 --(PR.com)-- The Medical Imaging & Technology Alliance (MITA) today commended Senate lawmakers for approving a provision to permanently repeal the medical device tax in the year-end spending agreement recently passed by the House of Representatives. Immediately after the vote, Dennis Durmis, SVP – Radiology Head of Americas Region, Bayer and Chair of the MITA Board of Directors issued the following statement:

“After dedicated advocacy from patient groups, industry stakeholders, and our champions on Capitol Hill, it looks like we’re finally moving towards a full repeal of this stifling tax that negatively impacts both healthcare innovation and jobs. I applaud Senators from both sides of the aisle for supporting passage of this important piece of legislation, and I urge the President to quickly sign this bipartisan measure into law.”

The Medical Imaging & Technology Alliance (MITA), a division of NEMA, is the collective voice of medical imaging equipment manufacturers, innovators, and product developers.
