TIA: CHIPS and Science Act Will Support A Trusted ICT Ecosystem

Arlington, VA (August 9, 2022) – The Telecommunications Industry Association — the trusted industry association for the connected world—released a statement applauding President Biden’s signature of the CHIPS and Science Act of 2022.

TIA issued the following statement from CEO David Stehlin:

“The CHIPS and Science Act is a critical, bipartisan investment in America’s connected future. The telecommunications sector represents half of all semiconductor end use, and the investments in U.S. chip fabrication and the expansion of that ecosystem, outlined in the bill, will significantly add to the strength of both U.S. networks and U.S. made solutions. This capability will be crucial to the success of the administration’s goal to connect every American to broadband internet.”

“Importantly, the CHIPS and Science Act also authorizes new programs that will help the Commerce and State Departments enhance global supply chain security and ensure that American innovation continues to drive the development of technical standards.”

“We thank the Congress and the Biden Administration for their leadership on these issues and look forward to partnering with them to make these programs a success.”
