HIA is sponsoring local events in support of the hearing aid tax credit during the August Congressional recess in Henderson, NV for Rep. Dina Titus and in La Crosse, WI for Rep. Ron Kind. Rep. Titus, a freshman Member, has been an ardent supporter of hearing health issues including the hearing aid tax credit, and Rep. Kind is a member of the important House Ways and Means committee which considers tax legislation.
The events are hosted by local members of AG Bell Assn for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing and Hearing Loss Assn of America with active support by local members of the International Hearing Society and several audiologists. The Nevada event is an August 22 brunch, while the Wisconsin event is an August 28 luncheon. HIA members are invited to attend each event, especially members located near either town.
