GOP Ohio congressional delegation wants chip law funded

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — GOP members of the Ohio congressional delegation have asked House and Senate leaders to fully fund a law meant to address a global shortage of semiconductor chips. Chip shortages fueled by shutdowns during the pandemic have interrupted the production of new vehicles and electronic devices for more than a year. The letter sent Friday urges top Congressional leaders to pass and fully fund the $52 billion CHIPS for America Act. The request comes as multiple media reports say Intel Corp. intends to build a massive computer-chip factory near Columbus, the latest semiconductor company to announce expansion plans in the U.S.
