My source has re-iterated that the Micron deal south of Lockhart is a done deal. Curious why Micron has not applied for the same subsidies from the ISD's and the State (maybe they have)....but I also think this might have something to do with it.

Yep, I think Micron-Lockhart gets announced right after this gets passed, as a thank you to Cornyn and McCaul.

‘Golden age’ or 'kind of scary'? Taylor residents grapple with idea of huge Samsung expansion

https://www.statesman.com/story/busi...n/65379879007/

According to documents filed with the state, Samsung is considering building 11 more chipmaking facilities in the Austin area in the next 20 years in what could be the biggest economic investment in Central Texas history. The technology giant's tentative plans include building nine of the facilities in Taylor, creating an estimated 8,200 jobs and bringing in $167.6 billion in investment.

The applications Samsung filed with the Taylor and Manor school districts seeking tax breaks haven’t been approved, and the company has made no guarantees that it will follow through on building all the facilities. Samsung says it is also considering other sites outside of Texas for the fabs.

Residents are trying to wrap their heads around the idea of Taylor landing such huge investment from Samsung. While they might welcome the job opportunities and growth potential it would bring, some say they are worried that Taylor would be fundamentally changed by the projects.

In the unlikely situation where Samsung builds all these factories instead of 1-2 more, where is all the water coming from?

Read somewhere they may run a pipe from Alcoa. Not sure if this is enough for a dozen fabs.

It's somewhat surprising that so many water intensive fabs are located or planned for often water challenged areas like Phoenix and Texas.

Seems they are currently focused on their Boise op's trying to secure 1.8b for expansion. Without CHIPS passing they claim it won't happen. Hard to see them also investing 40b in Lockhart when they're worried about securing 1.8b for Boise.

Carrizo-Wilcox Aquifer.

I worked on a project about 20 years ago where they began the plan to use the aquifer to help supply water to the estimated 1.5+ million people expected to live within a few miles of the (then under construction) SH-130 Toll corridor.

CHIPS passed the Senate, and is on the House. I assume it will pass there, since it's a Dem priority, and head to Biden's desk for signature.

Not really surprising. Water is much, much easier to source than talent.

Defense tech giant BAE Systems to move key aviation unit to Austin, add 100 jobs

https://www.statesman.com/story/busi...n/65391286007/

Aerospace and defense technology giant BAE Systems is moving key programs from its control and avionics solutions unit to Austin, with plans to hire 100 people to support the business in the next year.

BAE Systems' latest move is part of the company's plan to significantly grow its Austin presence. BAE Systems — which is based in Arlington, Va., and is a subsidiary of UK-based BAESystems plc. — announced in 2020 that it was moving to a new $150 million campus in the Parmer Austin Business Park and planned to double its 700-person Austin staff with hiring across a variety of its divisions. The new 390,000-square-foot facility is capable of accommodating more than 1,400 employees and includes engineering, manufacturing, laboratory and office space.

BAE Systems said with the move of its control and avionics solutions division to Austin, it expects to hire 100 workers by early 2023, with 75 of those hires by the end of this year.

They seem to have a lot of job openings locally that look to be fairly well paid and requiring a certain level of technical skill or knowledge of military systems.

Micron Technology is finalizing its specific U.S. expansion plans and will share additional details in the coming weeks so we should know if Lockhart was selected.

https://investors.micron.com/news-re...ng-edge-memory

A check of the Chapter 313 value-limitation applications and agreements and as of June 30, 2022 nothing was located related to Micron or Lockhart ISD.
