Medical device industry advocate Rep. Erik Paulsen (R-Minn.) says Congress needs to act on the medical device tax by "late spring, early summer" this year.

Capitol Hill

Rep. Erik Paulsen (R-Minn.), an unrelenting opponent of the medical device tax that took effect at the start of the year, still sees avenues for repeal tied to larger discussions of corporate tax reform.
