New York lands $100B micro chip plant

CHIPS are available to New York Democrats just over one month prior to Election Day. There aren’t any of the ones you see.

The most important announcement of Gov. Kathy Hochul came yesterday from Syracuse, with the announcement that Micron Technology Inc. will invest up to $100 billion in the coming 20 years to create an immense complex of semiconductor factories located in Syracuse’s Syracuse suburbs. It’s expected to comprise the largest clean room in the United States. space , which is 2.4 millions square feetwhich is nearly as big as the size of 40 soccer fields.

The attractionwas the largest incentive package ever offered by a state with a potential of $6 billion in subsidy.

The rewardscould be as large as 9,000 highly-paying Micron jobs, and more than 4000 community jobs over the next 20 to 25 timeframe, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced at the time of the announcement alongside Hochul the one he compared with “our Erie Canal moment.”

Micron has been able to benefit by the federal CHIPS and Science Act passed by Congress in August, which grants tax credits to U.S. companies. The company also revealed the launch of new initiatives that will be implemented in Boise as well as Japan.

and New York, which has fought for years -through scandal and crisis – through crises as well as scandal to become a major semiconductor manufacturer to counter its declining manufacturing jobs, is now able to rejoice. (Remember the Hochul editorial in the past year? Do you remember this Cuomo-Obama sexy affair in the year 2012?)

But, there’s a double portion of crisps available this week to Democrats to promote to voters. It was announced that the White House announced that President Joe Biden will go toward Poughkeepsie on the morning of April 9th in order to tour IBM’s headquarters on Route 9 to “deliver remarks on the creation of employment in the Hudson Valley, lowering costs and ensuring that the future of the country is built by America.”

This company declared that it is incredibly grateful by the recognition and “technology that IBM provides today through Poughkeepsie will benefit directly from the newly-passed CHIPS Act. This measure will also help create new breakthroughs that are vital to the Poughkeepsie’s position as the world’s premier quantum computing center.”

Biden’s trip is a part of a series which will also include the Democratic National Committee event in New Jersey and a reception for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in New York City.

It’s Wednesdayand it’s the the first day of Fat Bear Week.
