Earlier today the U.S. House of Representatives passed the bipartisan CHIPS and Science Act. With approval from the Senate and the House, it now heads to President Biden’s desk. The legislation will invest billions of dollars in semiconductor research and development, manufacturing, and workforce development, including the creation of a National Semiconductor Technology Center.

David Anderson, President of the New York Center for Research, Economic Advancement, Technology, Engineering and Science (NY CREATES) issued the following statement:

“The CHIPS and Science Act is a much-needed, strategic investment in the future of our country and will help to re-establish American leadership in innovation and the global semiconductor industry. We were very pleased to see strong bipartisan support as this is not about one industry – it’s about every industry that relies on chips as well as our economic and national security.

“I want to thank Senators Schumer and Gillibrand, Representatives Tonko and Morelle, and the entire New York Delegation for their tireless efforts in leading the charge and bringing the bill across the goal line. As we await the President’s signature, NY CREATES, along with our partners across the state and the nation, stands ready to support the Federal government in establishing a National Semiconductor Technology Center with an ecosystem in place that can leverage existing assets and investments and hit the ground running.”
