What’s Going On in Congress? Your Handy Guide to PCB Legislation Headlines


Reading time ( words)

The U.S. Congress is now in summer recess, so it seems like the perfect time to look back on how legislators finally addressed the needs of the microelectronics industry. We feel confident in saying there has never been a time when the floors of Congress gave our industry so much emphasis. For the past six months, there has been constant activity from lobbyists, legislators, semiconductor and printed circuit board associations, and individuals who want to bring more electronics production back to the United States.  

We know you have so many questions about what the legislation means for you. Will there be funds to expand or upgrade my facilities? What about tax breaks? How will my specific needs be known? What will the current legislation mean for U.S. vs. China relations? Use this handy guide to get caught up, sort out the CHIPS from the USICAs, and be that someone who talks knowledgably at dinner parties.
