Senate advances chips and science bill in 64-33 vote

The U.S. Senate on Wednesday advanced a microchips and science bill to a final vote, with 64 senators voting in favor and 33 in opposition. The measure, which provides $52.7 billion for the chips industry, could get signed into law in a matter of days. President Joe Biden has pushed for it, and analysts have predicted the House looks likely to pass the measure by the end of this week, before leaving for its August recess.
