Rep Ken Calvert (R-Calif) recently joined 124 of his House colleagues to become the 125th member to cosponsor the Hearing Aid Tax Credit, according to the Hearing Industries Association (HIA), Washington.

The legislation has already exceeded previous cosponsorship totals achieved in the Republican-majority 109th Congress (ending in 2006) and the Democratic-majority 110th Congress (ending in 2008)–both of which peaked at 112 cosponsors at the conclusion of each full 2-year session.
Channeling this record support, HIA is working with AARP, AG Bell, ADA, AAA, ASHA, HLAA, and IHS to conduct an August advocacy blitz in the home states and districts of Senate Finance and House Ways and Means Committee members.  Each organization will work with its members in select districts as part of an effort to meet with Senators, Representatives, and staff members in district offices during the long August/September Congressional recess.
