It’s true: a ShamWow is more exciting when it’s being shown in the fourth city in six weeks.

Trade in this tax exemption to save medical interpreter services for thousands of patients and families in Washington!

A visit to your doctor is too important to be treated like a high-stakes game of charades. That’s why doctors and patients alike rely on medical interpreters to provide life-saving medical information about treatments and prescriptions. Interpreter services improve the quality of care while reducing costly and deadly mistakes and errors. Ending this unnecessary and unfair tax exemption for sales of products displayed at trade shows would save medical interpreter services for thousands of patients and families.
