Ensuring the U.S. is Equipped to Lead in Science and Innovation
The CHIPS and Science Act includes a historic investment to surge production of American-made semiconductors, tackle supply chain vulnerabilities to make more goods in America, revitalize America’s scientific research and technological leadership, and strengthens America’s economic and national security at home and abroad.
"This legislation represents months of bipartisan and bicameral negotiations," said Science, Space, and Technology Committee Chairwoman Eddie Bernice Johnson. "The majority of this bill is made up of bipartisan provisions that started in the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology—which I am privileged to lead. They were built with rigorous input from the scientific community, industry, academia, and other stakeholders on what they need most to succeed in the 21st century. In this bill we are putting forth strong initiatives at NSF, NIST, NOAA, DOE, and NASA. We’re building a diverse STEM workforce ready to tackle the challenges we face, we’re strengthening our manufacturing capabilities, we’re revitalizing American science and innovation, we’re fighting the climate crisis, and so much more. And we’re doing it all with the needs of each and every American in mind. "
The CHIPS and Science Act was built from the ground up with input from the scientific community, academia, industry, and other important stake holders.
Association of American Universities
"The House bill helps bolster the United States’ global scientific and technological leadership and economic competitiveness by balancing the need to secure critical federally funded university research with the need to grow and attract both domestic and international STEM talent."
White House Office of Management and Budget
"H.R. 4521 is aligned with the President’s vision to enhance American economic and scientific competitiveness; build a stronger, more diverse, and more inclusive innovation ecosystem; and invest in strengthening critical supply chains, our domestic industrial base, and regional economic growth and development."
