Colorado BioScience Association President & CEO Holli Riebel and Dan Wittenberg, CBSA Public Policy Co-Chair, are in Washington, D.C., this week, representing Colorado's Medical Device Industry.
Background: "Delegations for med-tech and other life science sectors from 18 states are converging on the nation's capitol to conduct coordinated visits to their local representatives in Congress...
Among the issues expected to be hammered home to lawmakers is the potential damage of the 2.3% medical device tax, slated to begin in 2013. The pilgrimage is part of a coordinated effort by AdvaMed's State Medical Technology Alliance, which organizes annual fly-ins for state associations that represent the interests of the medical device industry."
