Novus Public Affairs Helps Pass CHIPS Act
Despite having broad bipartisan support in both chambers of Congress, the CHIPS and Science Act was caught up in a difficult negotiation that put $52 billion in tax credits and incentives for the domestic manufacture of semiconductors in jeopardy. Worse, Congressional deadlines meant there was limited time to persuade Members of the Senate to pass this important initiative.
The industry turned to Novus Public Affairs’ writing team, which mobilized to generate 21 unique and impactful Op-Eds across 19 states within 3 weeks with the goal of educating the public on the importance of domestic chip manufacturing and the urgency behind passing the bill. These Op-Eds ran in every region of the country, even in hard-to-place markets like New York. The Novus team’s commitment to quality and attention to detail make this content stand out in a crowded information marketplace.
The United States Senate passed the CHIPS Act with an overwhelming and bipartisan majority in July 2022 and President Joe Biden signed it into law in August.
