West Coast technology officially came together Friday with Midwest manufacturing prowess to create the Silicon Heartland.

Under a sun-splashed late summer day, President Joe Biden joined Ohio political, educational, union and business leaders to break ground on Intel’s $20 billion project in Licking County to create the world’s most advanced semiconductor factories. It is the state’s largest economic development prize.

Friday’s groundbreaking also served as a celebration of the recently enacted CHIPS and Science Act that is meant to restore U.S. production of the tiny devices that power everything from cellphones to computers to cars to military equipment that has been largely shipped overseas. Biden signed the legislation into law last month, and Intel has said the legislation will play a meaningful role in how it develops the site in Ohio.
