Amazon Eyeing Chicago for Second HQ

Amazon Eyeing Chicago for Second HQ

Governor Bruce Rauner isn’t releasing details of the offer made for Amazon’s second headquarters yet, but says Illinois is the company’s best bet.

The offer from the state and city of Chicago was turned in Monday, and included sites in the city and the suburbs. Governor Rauner says Amazon has been specific about what they are looking for.

States have until Thursday night to submit a bid so governor Rauner says they won’t give out any more details until that deadline passes. He notes if Amazon selects Illinois, the project will create thousands of high paying jobs.
