The Inflation Reduction Act and the CHIPS and Science bill passed by Senate Democrats last year have already started spurring investments across the country, and states from coast to coast are benefitting from these historic bills. Over 80 major investment announcements have been made in communities across the country as a direct result of this legislation, totaling over $200 billion and creating tens of thousands of good-paying jobs. These major investments in semiconductor and clean energy manufacturing represent the future; from solar energy in Arizona to electric semi-truck manufacturing in Nevada and a plant dedicated to “creating 300-millimeter semiconductors” in Utah, these bills are helping to lay the groundwork for the next generation of American leadership.

And, today marks the opening day for applications for CHIPS and Science bill funding from the Commerce Department. Today’s rollout is a major step towards making America the world leader in chip production once again, with tremendous benefits for our national security, for outcompeting the Chinese Communist Party, and creating tens of thousands of good-paying union jobs right here at home.“Six months after CHIPS and Science and the Inflation Reduction Act were passed into law, the benefits are clear and unmistakable: over $200 billion in private investment have been announced across 16 states. That includes $100 billion proposed by Micron to manufacture advanced memory chips in my home state of New York, an investment that will translate to tens of thousands of good-high paying jobs and transform upstate New York, once the manufacturing powerhouse of America,” said Leader Schumer. “This is about laying a crucial foundation to make the U.S. a global leader in chip, clean energy and electric vehicle manufacturing, which is critical to our national security and competitiveness, and to our fight against the climate crisis.”
