The U.S. government's proposed $52 billion funding for microchip research and production could help establish seven to 10 new chip fabrication plants in the U.S.
"We just need the federal money ... to unlock private capital," U.S. Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo said at an event outside a Micron Technology chip factory.
"It could be seven, could be eight, could be nine, could be 10 new factories in America by the time we're done," she added.
Raimondo said government funding could help generate "$150 billion-plus" investment in chip research and production, including contributions from state and federal governments and private firms.
