Cities Bids are in for Amazon's Second Headquarters


Amazon says they received 238 proposals from across North America as the company searches for someplace to build their second headquarters.

The online retail giant published a map Monday showing that bids came from D.C. and all but seven states - Arkansas, Hawaii, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Vermont and Wyoming - as well as from most of southern Canada, three regions of Mexico and Puerto Rico. Amazon says it would mean 50,000 new jobs, and an investment of up to $5 billion.

The bulk of the package comes from $1.32 billion in state EDGE tax credits, which provide companies with tax breaks when they promise to create jobs in IL, the sources said.
