Washington – US Sen. Charles Schumer says he’ll step up his push for a computer chip plant in Syracuse’s suburbs after the Senate passed a bill Wednesday offering $52 billion in incentives for manufacturers to open new plants in the United States.

Schumer, DN.Y., said he’ll use his clout as Senate majority leader to help lure a semiconductor chip fabricating plant to Central New York and convince federal officials to approve an incentive package.
