HIA Honors Representative Jim Ryun

Alexandria, VA. July 29, 2005 The Hearing Industries Association (HIA) presented its Representative of the Year award to Congressman Jim Ryun (R-KS), for his continued involvement with hearing health issues and sponsorship of H.R. 414, the Hearing Aid Assistance Tax Credit Act. H.R. 414 would provide a $500 tax credit, per hearing aid, once every five years to dependents and those 55 and older who purchase hearing aids.

In making the presentation to the Congressman, HIA executive director Carole M. Rogin noted, H.R. 414, and its companion bill S. 1060, are the first pieces of hearing-related legislation in decades that have the full support of virtually every organization in the hearing field. HIA is pleased to honor Congressman Ryun as Representative of the Year, to acknowledge and to thank him for dedicating his time, resources and knowledge to hearing health issues. The hearing health care community is grateful for his ongoing leadership and support.
