H.R.4487: Medical Innovation Act of 2017

Author's Summary:  To authorize the collection of supplemental payments to increase congressional investments in medical research, and for other purposes.

IB Summary:  According to the The Alliance for Aging Research: "The Alliance supports policies that advance medical research and innovation and address the needs of aging patients. For this reason, we are unwavering in our support of efforts to repeal the medical device tax. We believe the tax will drain critical resources away from research and development of new medical devices to improve detection and treatment of age-related diseases and conditions, which will in turn slow down progress in quality of life for the aging population."

Status:   Introduced on 11/29/2017. Referred to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce.
