Ohio's Congressional Delegation Touts Columbus As Site For New Amazon HQ

Ohio's Congressional delegation has sent a letter to online retailer Amazon pitching Columbus as the location for a second headquarters.  

Lawmakers cite the region's research and educational institutions, its proximity to major transportation routes and its recent designation as a Smart City. The amount of tax breaks Columbus and the state are offering to the retailer to land the facility has not been disclosed. 

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
