The US Senate has passed a bill to confront China in the technical field


The US Senate passed a bill on Monday that would allocate $ 52 billion from the budget for the development of semiconductor production in the country, in order to increase the competitiveness of the United States in the face of China, in the technical field. The upper house session was broadcast by C-SPAN.

68 senators voted in favor of the initiative, 28 voted against.

Earlier, the US House of Representatives approved its own version of the bill, which differs from that adopted by the Senate. In this regard, both chambers of the US legislature will have to set up a committee to agree on the details of the approved initiatives, after which they will vote again on a compromise version of the bill. If approved by both Houses, the document will be signed by the President of the country. According to Bloomberg, the preparation of the final version of the bill is unlikely to be completed before the end of May.
