Allred Applauds Samsung Doubling Investment in Texas Manufacturing Plant, Made Possible by CHIPs Act He Championed

DALLAS – Congressman Colin Allred today applauded news that Samsung would double its investment in its Taylor plant near Austin. Though final numbers are yet to be announced, Samsung is expected to receive billions in funds made possible by the CHIPS and Science Act, which Allred championed. 

The effort to pass the CHIPS Act was bipartisan and was supported by Texas Republicans like Senator John Cornyn, Congresswoman Kay Granger and Congressman Michael McCaul. Ted Cruz voted no on the CHIPS Act.

“Once again the CHIPS Act is delivering for our state,” said Allred. “I look forward to hearing more details as they become available but we all know that big things happen in Texas when we work together. It’s a shame that Ted Cruz time and time again chooses politics over job creation, over leading the world in high-tech manufacturing and over what is best for Texas. I will always work to put Texas first, and I welcome Samsung’s proposed investment. Texans deserve a Senator who will put our state first and work to build on this progress for Texas.” 

Allred has also championed bipartisan permitting reform that would streamline semiconductor manufacturing projects that receive CHIPS Act funds.
