Pelosi Announces Members of Conference Committee for America COMPETES Act

Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the names of the Members of the House who will go to conference with the Senate over the House’s America COMPETES Act of 2022, which makes crucial investments in the production of semiconductor chips, strengthening supply chains, and bolstering research and development.

 

“Today, we take another step toward sending to the President’s desk a bipartisan, bicameral package to lower costs at home, make more goods in America and turbocharge our competitiveness in the world,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi said.  “America has long led the world in innovation and technology.  Thanks to the leadership of Chairwoman Eddie Bernice Johnson, the House strengthens our preeminence with our America COMPETES Act: a data-driven, results-oriented package to lift up American families, workers and businesses.”

 

“Under the leadership of our outstanding and experienced committee chairs and conferees, the House will champion key priorities with bipartisan support that will advance our families’ financial security and our nations’ economic security,” Speaker Pelosi continued.  “This includes investing $52 billion to produce more semiconductor chips in America and $45 billion to advance manufacturing at home – which together will help address supply chain disruptions that increase costs for Americans.  We will also fight to reinvigorate American innovation through research and development, diversify our STEM workforce, and promote American interests and values abroad.  Making the COMPETES Act law will deliver a key victory for our workers and families, while ensuring America can outcompete any nation – now and for decades to come.”
