Applied Materials Hosts Congressman Mike Honda
I recently had the great pleasure of hosting California Democratic Congressman Mike Honda during a town hall meeting at Applied Materials where he discussed a variety of issues including education, the deficit, and the significance of government, private partnerships to ensure U.S. competitiveness.
During the town hall meeting, Congressman Honda described how he is leading efforts to establish a two-year public-private partnership between the industry and the federal government to help the industry’s transition to 450mm—a transition that is scheduled to take place in the future. To learn more about this initiative read Honda’s latest op-ed in The Hill.
Honda is Silicon Valley’s representative in Congress. He is Budget Task Force chairman for the Congressional Progressive Caucus, the author of “The People’s Budget,” and a member of the House Appropriations and Budget committees.
