IPC Commends U.S. Senate on Passage of Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill


Reading time ( words)

IPC issued the following statement from President and CEO John Mitchell on the expected passage of the bipartisan infrastructure bill in the U.S. Senate:

“Electronics manufacturers welcome the prospect of historic infrastructure investments in America’s roads, ports, electric grids, and digital networks. Our members’ supply chains depend on modern, resilient infrastructure; and in today’s high-tech world, America’s infrastructure depends on cutting-edge, reliable electronics. We also appreciate the inclusion of smart manufacturing investments. This bipartisan infrastructure bill will help drive growth in the overall economic recovery, including the electronics industry.    

“We commend the tireless efforts of Senators Rob Portman and Kyrsten Sinema, along with the bipartisan Group of 22, who labored arduously to produce this compromise.”

Printed Circuit Boards: Past the Lobby and Onto the Floor

08/08/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
There has not been a time in recent memory when the U.S. legislative body is putting as much focus on the microelectronics industries. One bill, the CHIPS Act, was signed into law last year. A new bill introduced this year seeks to allocate funding for printed circuit board fabrication. In this exclusive interview, our team spoke with Travis Kelly, CEO of Isola Group and president of the Printed Circuit Board Association, and U.S. Rep. Blake Moore (R-Utah), who has co-sponsored the bill now before the House. Travis and Blake both express optimism about onshoring domestic production, but the realities of the legislative calendar may pose some risks.
