Congressman Paulsen headlines discussion on growing state’s med tech industry

U.S. Rep. Erik Paulsen, who led a successful effort in the House to repeal the med-tech tax, will headline a dinner and discussion Friday on ways to help the medical technology industry grow in Minnesota.

One of those ways, he says, is the med-tax repeal, which still must be taken up by the Senate and faces a veto from President Obama because it would divert funding from proposed health insurance subsidies for low- and middle-income earners under his health reform plan.

Friday’s event, from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Minneapolis Marriott Southwest in Minnetonka, is sponsored by the Freedom Foundation of Minnesota.

The event is free, but seating is limited and RSVPs are required by email to or by calling 612-354-2160.

Shaye Mandle, vice president of government relations for LifeScience Alley, will give an overview of Minnesota’s bio-medical industries before Paulsen speaks at 5 p.m.
