MASS Group Applauds the Passage and Signing of the CHIPS and Science Act

President Biden recently signed bipartisan legislation to provide a $280 billion package to the domestic semiconductor industry that aims to boost U.S. competitiveness and solve supply chain challenges.

LAS VEGAS, Aug. 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- President Biden recently signed The CHIPS and Science Act of 2022 into law. It will boost American semiconductor research, development, and production to ensure U.S. leadership in the semiconductor industry. This bipartisan legislation, which includes a $52 billion subsidy for semiconductors, will strengthen the domestic production and supply chain of semiconductors while increasing competitiveness with other countries like China.

The new act will also increase the United States' efforts to combat climate change by significantly increasing investment in clean-energy innovation and zero-carbon technology. The CHIPS Act is estimated to direct $67 billion toward the growth of zero-carbon industries and climate-relevant research.

The CHIPS and Science Act will provide the U.S. with the opportunity to compete against other economic leaders in the world and advance its global leadership in future technologies. The new bill will embolden manufacturers from across the United States to drastically upscale their operations and improve their automated systems and processes.
