Ongoing supply chain disruptions are highlighting the uncertainty facing the United States when it comes to securing much-needed semiconductors and other crucial national security technologies. Meanwhile, policymakers are debating what measures are necessary to ensure a stable manufacturing base in the future.

On Thursday, December 9 CNAS hosted a fireside chat with Deputy Secretary of Commerce Don Graves and CNAS CEO Richard Fontaine on the Biden Administration's efforts to strengthen U.S. industrial capacity in critical technologies, including the ongoing deliberations with Congress over the CHIPs Act, which calls for $50 billion in spending to boost the American semiconductor industry.
