As President Joe Biden prepares to sign a bipartisan bill that would boost domestic manufacturing of computer chips, 

some advocates said the bill is incomplete without immigration provisions. 

Congress passed the bill, known as the CHIPS (Creating Helpful Incentives to Produce Semiconductors) Act, last week.  

Supporters said it would help prevent supply chain shortages. Biden, who tested positive a second time for the coronavirus Saturday,  

is likely to sign the legislation in the coming days. 

What’s in CHIPS? Roughly $52 billion in incentives for the semiconductor industry.

The shortage issue: The COVID-19 pandemic led to a shortage of semiconductor microchips, which power thousands of products such as cars, 

STEM worker shortage: Some top chip manufacturing companies raised concerns over a shortage of high-skill STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) 

workers, calling on Congress to make it easier for those workers to stay in the USA, according to Politico. 

More federal-state partnerships to come: Biden virtually joined an event with Michigan Gov.
