WASHINGTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – The Senate passed the all-important-to-Ohio CHIPS Act Wednesday afternoon, 64 to 33.

Congressman Tim Ryan says on Fox he is set to vote “yes” in the House, as soon as Thursday.

Intel says it needs the bill to proceed with construction of a multi-billion dollar semiconductor manufacturing facility near Columbus.

President Biden has said he will sign the bill, if passed in the House.
