Chairwoman Johnson Prepares for House Consideration of CHIPS and Science Act
(Washington, DC) – Today, the Senate passed the CHIPS and Science Act and the House plans to consider the bill this week. The CHIPS and Science Act includes provisions from the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology that make historic investments to surge production of American-made semiconductors, tackle supply chain vulnerabilities to make more goods in America, bolster America’s scientific research and technological leadership, and strengthen America’s economic and national security at home and abroad. Many of these provisions passed the House in February as part of the America COMPETES Act.
"After months of bipartisan and bicameral negotiations, today the Senate took the next critical step to maintaining America’s global leadership in science and innovation," said Chairwoman Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX). "This package includes bipartisan provisions that began in the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, which, if enacted, will bolster American manufacturing, fight the climate crisis, ensure our STEM workforce reflects the diversity of our country, and revitalize support for our premier research institutions: DOE, NASA, NIST, NOAA, and NSF. With this legislation, we are ushering in a bold and prosperous future for American science and innovation. It is time for my House colleagues to come together and bring this package to President Biden for his signature."
