Before he was sworn into office, U.S. Rep. John Katko said legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act's medical device tax would be the first bill he supports as a member of Congress.
Jessica Crawford, president of MedTech, an organization advocating for New York's biomedical industry, said the House vote is a "critical step forward."
"We thank Rep. John Katko for his early leadership in the 114th Congress and appreciate recognition by the House of Representatives that this onerous tax stifles innovation and hurts New York's medical technology industry," she said. "John Katko realizes the urgency in getting this legislation through the Senate and across the legislative finish line now."
