340B Stakeholders Reconsider Campaign Contributions in Wake of Capitol Riot

National health care organizations and businesses with major stakes in the 340B program have suspended political contributions following a pro-Trump mob’s Jan. 6 violent attack on Congress to stop it from counting and certifying the Electoral College’s votes for president. A U.S. Capitol Police officer died due to injuries sustained while on duty, and 14 police officers were injured. A protester who entered the Capitol was shot and killed.

Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO) on Jan. 11 said it “will be pausing our political giving so we can reassess the criteria upon which we support political candidates in the future.” Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) on Jan. 12 said it “paus[ed] political giving to those who voted to reject the outcome of the election.”
