Vaccine flat excise tax legislation to be introduced in April, Connaught exec predicts.

Executive Summary

VACCINE FLAT EXCISE TAX LEGISLATION LIKELY TO BE INTRODUCED WITHIN NEXT MONTH, Pasteur Merieux Connaught Director of Government Affairs and Public Policy Jeff Peterson told the Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines March 13. "We have agreement in principle from a Republican and a Democrat on the Ways and Means Committee to introduce the original Clinton package from July 1995, so the bill probably will be introduced within the next month," he said. The excise tax would put into effect a flat tax rate of $.51 per preventable disease for vaccines covered under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.
