Amazon released its list of cities it is considering for a new headquarters and CT is not among the selections.

- The 238 cities that submitted bids to be picked as the site of Amazon's second headquarters facility have been whittled down to 20, with Los Angeles the only California city on the new list, Amazon said Thursday.

Boston; Chicago; Columbus, Ohio; Dallas; Denver; Indianapolis; Los Angeles; Miami; Montgomery County, Md.; Nashville; Newark, N.J.; NY; northern Virginia; Philadelphia; Pittsburgh; Raleigh, N.C.; Toronto; and Washington, D.C., are contenders in the Seattle-based company's quest for a second home. "We are ready to show the company why we believe the Chicago area is their best option". The company received proposals from 238 communities, including one from Minneapolis-St.

Amazon says it expects to make a final decision about which gets the nod sometime in 2018, so by the end of this year. Over the past five years, Amazon has invested more than $100 billion in the USA, including corporate offices, development and research centers, fulfillment infrastructure, and compensation to its teams.
