Congressional Delegation Urges Biden Administration To Support New Mexico As Hub Of Semiconductor Innovation

New Mexico Congressional Delegation News:

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Tuesday, U.S. Senators Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) and Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.) and U.S. Representatives Teresa Leger Fernández (D-N.M.) and Melanie Stansbury (D-N.M.) wrote to U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo and U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm to express strong support for New Mexico as a potential site for the National Semiconductor Technology Centers (NSTC) and National Advanced Packaging Manufacturing Program (NAPMP).

“New Mexico has long been at the cutting edge of the semiconductor industry, and with a culture of innovation and a diverse pool of talent, New Mexico is well-positioned to rapidly advance national goals for semiconductor innovation,” wrote the lawmakers. “Establishing National Semiconductor Technology Centers (NSTC) and National Advanced Packaging Manufacturing Program (NAPMP) sites in New Mexico would not only reap benefits from our state’s research and development sector, but would also provide opportunities to a demographic that is underrepresented in STEM but that has the skills and training to make advancements in this field.” 

“Our state is a hub of semiconductor innovation, brimming with diverse and talented people and the right industries poised for growth. We strongly urge you to consider sites in New Mexico for the National Semiconductor Technology Centers and National Advanced Packaging Manufacturing Program,” the lawmakers concluded.
