WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Bryan Steil (WI-01) released a statement following passage of legislation co-introduced with Reps. Michael McCaul (TX-10), Jake Ellzey (TX-06), and Deborah Ross (NC-02), to allow semiconductor manufacturing to be permitted under the FAST Act to increase production of chips and reduce bureaucratic delays.
“For far too long, investment in the United States has been slowed by bureaucratic delays. If we’ve learned anything from the supply chain shortages in the last few months, much less the last two years, it’s that we need to encourage production of goods in the United States. This legislation will allow producers to get up and running quickly and allow the United States to become a leader in chip manufacturing.”
- 3451 passed the Senate by Unanimous Consent in January. Today, the House passed the legislation to include certain computer-related projects in the Federal permitting program under title XLI of the FAST Act.
