Consumers Union, the policy and mobilization arm of Consumer Reports, is pleased to support H.R. 1652, the “Over-the-Counter Hearing Aid Act of 2017,” your legislation to help make hearing aids available to consumers more conveniently and affordably.

As noted in our recent article in the March 2017 issue of Consumer Reports, price considerations keep many Americans from getting hearing assistance instruments that could make a big difference in their quality of life.
