AdvaMed Pins Hopes For Device Tax Repeal On 10 Senate Democrats, But Could Lose House Support

A coalition of 27 Senators – including 10 Democrats led by Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn. – on March 7 co-sponsored a bill to permanently repeal the device tax. AdvaMed says support of additional Democrats on this year’s bill should persuade Senate leaders to bring S. 692 to the floor for a vote, or it could be attached to other, "must pass"’ legislation. But the bill’s approval in the Democratic-controlled House is uncertain. Sixty-five of 283 “yes,” voters – mostly GOP – favoring tax repeal in the last session, are no longer in office.
