The CHIPS and Science Act is the result of something exciting on Capitol Hill: a productive discussion about the next generation of American research that prioritizes investments in science.

In addition to $54 billion for semiconductor innovation, manufacturing, and research and development, it is exciting to see a bipartisan majority in Congress step up to support five-year authorizations for research agencies totaling nearly $170 billion.

While this bipartisan, bipartisan effort is important, it must be the first step. These authorizations clarify how Congress must ensure sustainable and predictable growth for research agencies through the annual appropriations process and the new money needed to launch the many exciting programs the CHIPS and Science Act creates. This plan for future spending can build on recent investments and a strong foundation in the American research enterprise.
