Trump ’ s Halt on Coal Mining Study Has Asbestos Implications
The U.S. Department of the Interior has ordered a halt to a study on the public health risks of mountaintop removal mining in Appalachia — an area ripe with natural asbestos deposits. A letter from the Interior Department on Monday directed the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine to “cease all work” on the study, citing responsible spending of taxpayer dollars as the reason for the decision. The $1 million National Academies study began in 2016 and was expected to take two years to complete. It aimed to evaluate health risks of a common mining technique for people living near surfac...

Trump signs FDA user fee bill into law
President Donald Trump last week signed a bill to re-up the agreement between the FDA and the medical device and pharmaceutical industries, putting medical device companies in line for a collective $1 billion in user fees. Companies pay user fees to help cover the cost of the safety watchdog’s reviews of their products. The bill to renew the agreement, the “FDA Reauthorization Act of 2017,” also calls for pharma firms to put up $8 billion for drug reviews. The Congressional Budget Office in June estimated that the measure would add $740 million to the budget and a negligible amount to the deficit. The CBO...

Conservative groups jump on medical device tax repeal bandwagon
A coalition of conservative action groups yesterday jumped on the bandwagon for repealing the medical device tax, urging Congressional leaders to scrap the 2.3% levy on U.S. medtech sales. In a letter to House speaker Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Senate majority leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), the group also advocated for repealing a tax on certain insurance programs.

‘ Any moving vehicle ’ : Medtech seeks a path for medical device tax repeal as Trumpcare dies
The likely demise of Republican plans to repeal Obamacare and replace it with their own version of healthcare reform has the medtech industry casting about for another way to get a repeal of the medical device tax into law.

During the three years it was in effect (a two-year moratorium went into effect at the beginning of last year), the tax brought in $5.3 billion, well short of the $8.7 billion it was expected to bring in to IR...
