Senate Passes Bi-Partisan Bill to Boost US Tech Industry
On Tuesday, the Senate passed a bill aimed at boosting the US tech industry; especially semiconductor production and the further development of artificial intelligence.
The bill is also aimed at keeping the US at the forefront of technology, particularly against international competitors, such as China.
The bill passed with bi-partisan support with a 68-32 vote and will increase spending by about $250 Billion over the first five years.
Supporters say the bill is the largest investment into US scientific research in decades.
