ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) — This week on Empire State Weekly, several pieces of legislation at the state and national level are bringing more resources to the growing semiconductor chip manufacturing industry. New York Governor Kathy Hochul signed the Green Chips bill into law this week, while in Washington, Pres. Joe Biden signed the Chips and Science bill.

Steven Grasso, managing director of global government affairs at Global Foundries, joined Solomon Syed this week. Global Foundries is a Malta-based semiconductor chip manufacturer. Grasso says increased funding and tax incentives are helping to boost production in the state, which he says can help maintain international competition.

Also this week, although the CDC has relaxed some COVID safety guidelines, the ongoing pandemic continues to strain New York’s healthcare system. Jonathan Baker, medical assistant (PA) and former president of the State Society of Physicians Assistants, explains how a new law currently awaiting Hochul’s signature could help PAs respond to the pandemic.
