Legislators Propose Review of Semiconductor Supply Chain

Chips are primarily produced in Taiwan. 

A  bipartisan group of legislators in the House of Representatives led by Representative Mike Gallagher of Wisconsin is proposing a systematic review of semiconductor supply chains in light of a worldwide shortage. 

Semiconductors, the chief component of electronic chips, are primarily produced in Taiwan, and the COVID-19 pandemic severely disrupted their production and distribution.  

Due to concerns about a potential Chinese invasion of the island, the U.S. government has urged tech companies to invest in semiconductor fabrication plants on American soil. However, some observers expect the shortage to continue into 2023 and it is considered a key contributor to rising automobile, smartphone, and computer prices. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For members of Congress as they attempt to determine the resilience of the semiconductor supply chain.
  • For discernment for U.S. governing officials as solutions to microchip shortages are sought.
  • For the president to seek God’s wisdom on the direction the nation should go.
