Gov. Holcomb Issues Statement Urging Congress to Take Action on Bipartisan Innovation Bill
Indianapolis, Indiana (March 9, 2022) – Governor Eric J. Holcomb today visited the White House to urge Congress to take immediate bi-partisan action and pass an innovation bill including the CHIPS for America Act. He offered the following statement:
“It’s crucial that Congress come together and pass a bipartisan innovation package to address the supply shortage of semiconductors and invest in key technologies that will put our country in the pole position.
This legislation will grow domestic manufacturing, support the development of cutting-edge technological innovation and create a high-tech workforce to continue our state’s economic competitive edge on a global scale.
The meeting illustrated the need for government, industry and academia to join together and tell congress to send a bipartisan innovation bill to the President’s desk faster than an Indy race car.”
