Both Oregon and NY are states with a large number of people involved in developing future nodes. Intel process development is done at Hillsboro, OR and IBM in NY is still a force to reckon with. Being able to hire away some of these highly qualified people w/o having them to relocate is no doubt a factor for TSMC site selection. As a corollary what does it say about TSMC transistor / process development below 28 nm ??

TSMC has confirmed they are looking at sites for a US Fab so it is most likely them.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
