INDIANAPOLIS — The CHIPS and Science Act was signed into law Tuesday by President Biden.

This bill was created in part to address the shortage of technology like computer chips that resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic.  It was also created to help increase tech manufacturing and independence in the United States, to make the country a global leader once again.

Senator Todd Young has been a vocal supporter of the legislation.  After it was signed into law, he Tweeted, “Today, America goes on offense against the Chinese Communist Party.”  He later said that the bill’s passage will help create “a more prosperous and secure tomorrow for all Americans.”

Governor Eric Holcomb also took to social media to support the CHIPS and Science Act becoming law.  He thanked Young for his work on the bill and wrote, “This legislation prioritizes our country’s economic future in advanced manufacturing and will help keep our country safe from any and all adversaries.”

Holcomb also stressed that Hoosiers will benefit from the law.  He Tweeted, “Indiana now has the edge needed to compete on a global scale.”
