Friday, September 9

Today, President Joe Biden is traveling to Licking County, Ohio, for the groundbreaking of the Intel semiconductor manufacturing site located northeast of Columbus. Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger, and other state and local officials will participate in the event.

Early this year, Governor DeWine stated, “My administration has been working closely with Intel to bring its most advanced semiconductor manufacturing facilities in the world to Ohio. This new partnership will transform our state!“

The Ohio governor added, “Intel plans to invest an initial $20 billion to build two state-of-the-art factories in Licking County by 2025. The factories will have Intel’s most advanced process technologies and will help reconfigure the global semiconductor supply chain.“

During the pandemic, many industries that rely on semiconductor technology were hampered by supply chain issues and microchip shortages. President Biden signed the CHIPS and Science Act last month to support domestic microchip manufacturing.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the safety of the president as he travels.
  • For discernment the president and his administration as they implement the chip manufacturing legislation.
  • For Governor DeWine to seek God’s guidance as he looks after the interests of the people of Ohio.
