EMSNOW Up Close: David Schild, Executive Director, PCBAA

Eric asks David for an update based on his recent time in Washington, DC advocating for the PCB industry. This is an important legislative window where decisions are being made to bring electronics manufacturing back to the U.S. There is some progress in educating policy makers about the need for domestic PCB manufacturing, but there is still a lot of work to do, he says. The phrase ‘Chips Don’t Float’ is starting to get some traction, but changing legislators minds about the critical need for domestic manufacturing is slow. Tax breaks and other government action will change the cost equation for buying PCBs locally. This is an in-depth discussion of what’s going on right now in the Capitol that shouldn’t be missed.
