Kansas Officials Will Try to Attract Amazon HQ

Amazon is planning to open a second headquarters in the U.S., and Kansas officials will be making a pitch for it.
Lieutenant Governor Jeff Colyer told members of the Ottawa Area Chamber of Commerce that he and other Kansas leaders will make the most aggressive offer they’ve ever made for a company. It’s not yet clear what that could include as far as tax breaks or economic incentives, but according the Lawrence Journal-World, Colyer noted Kansas already has a relationship with the company because of local Amazon shipping centers.

Colyer will be touting the quality of the state’s infrastructure and schools as a way to get the company to consider Kansas side of the KC metro area.

Colyer is set to take over as governor after Governor Sam Brownback steps down to work in the Trump administration.
