Hottinger Applauds Congress for Passing the CHIPS and Science Act
July 28, 2022
COLUMBUS—State Senator Jay Hottinger (R-Newark) today applauded Congress’s passing of the CHIPS and Science Act, which will accelerate the nation’s semiconductor manufacturing. The bill is a key piece of legislation for Intel’s investment in central Ohio, as it will provide significant funding toward American semiconductor manufacturing and for innovation in technology.

The CHIPS and Science Act allocates around $52 billion to semiconductor companies such as Intel to help build and expand their fabrication plants on American soil. These plants create the critical computer chips used for consumer, medical, and military products.

“Today’s news is a major step forward for the future of Ohio and the United States. I’m thrilled that Congress showed bipartisan support for legislation that will make our nation more competitive in the global economy while protecting our national security,” Hottinger said. “Funds from the bill will allow Intel to move forward with its historic project in Licking County, which will have a substantial impact on our local economy and communities.”

Earlier this summer, Senator Hottinger and his colleague Senator Brenner sponsored Senate Concurrent Resolution 17 to urge Congress to allocate money to the CHIPS Act following months of debate on the legislation. The CHIPS and Science Act now heads to the President to be signed into law.
