June 2024 Newsletter

Dear Friends, Look out, Washington, DC - here we come! In just a few weeks, we will host our first AMMA “Fly-In” to the US Capitol. Over the course of several days, we’ll meet with decision-makers at every level of government to advocate for greater investment in domestically manufactured medical supplies. We will arrive with some remarkable momentum. Two weeks ago, AMMA Board members attended a ceremony in the White House Rose Garden. The President announced new tariffs on many medical...

May 2024 Newsletter

Dear AMMA Members and Friends,   This has been a very busy month. As April began, we started understanding the full extent of damage to the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore, Maryland. Located just minutes from AMMA President Dan Izhaky’s United Safety Technology, the disaster brought our national reliance on a fragile global supply chain into focus.   We also continue to push for a federal focus on how foreign actors exploit tariff and trade policy to compete unfairly with...

April 2024 Newsletter

Friends, We send this newsletter to you just days after the tragic freighter accident on the Francis Scott Key Bridge. Our hearts ache for the lives lost and for the families and communities left devastated by this heartbreaking event. We thank the first responders and search and rescue teams that have worked tirelessly. As leaders in domestic manufacturing industries, AMMA recognizes infrastructure's critical role in our national economy.   We will look for ways to contribute to the local...

March 2024 Newsletter

Friends, Spring in Washington in an election year is a frantic time. Any legislation that can gather bipartisan support is racing its way through both houses. Many bills are blocked for electoral consideration. And amidst this, the continued challenge of passing a budget remains. As domestic manufacturers facing stiff competition from China and others abroad, we have advocated for increased tariffs and Customs and Border Patrol (CPB) import enforcement actions. Lately, we have been garnering...

February 2024 Newsletter

Dear AMMA members, allies, and friends, 2024 is shaping up to be as much of a whirlwind as 2023.

January 2024 Newsletter

Dear AMMA Community, Happy New Year! 2024 will be a crucial year for AMMA members and the global trade policies that impact PPE production and distribution. International trade, especially with China, will continue to be a priority of Congress and the Administration will focus on the impacts of reliance on cheap, foreign-made goods on the US economy and our national resilience. At AMMA, we are working to keep Chinese anti-competitive practices and how Congress can help us fight back at the...

December 2023 Newsletter

Dear AMMA Members and Allies, First and foremost, thank you for your support during this busy, productive, and up-and-down year. We’ve been busy here at AMMA, most recently holding our monthly Board meeting in person in Washington D.C. Many members joined us in D.C. for Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA)’s Industry Day. It was great to meet with leaders from the Administration for Strategic Preparedness and Response (ASPR) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human...

November 2023 Newsletter

Friends, So much has changed in just a month since we last sent an update. Congress deposed the Speaker of the House and after 3 weeks and multiple votes Congressman Mike Johnson of Louisiana is now the new Speaker. Government was kept open by a continuing resolution but a sunset for that legislation is approaching on the horizon. In addition, both a bipartisan delegation of Senators visited China and Administration trade and privacy officials joined with their global colleagues to call...
