Alabama "out" of Amazon second headquarters consideration

Officials from Amazon say they received 238 proposals for its new headquarters.

"Thank you to all 238 communities that submitted proposals". Those proposals sought to highlight each city's strengths, based on the wish list the company created to help it find the ideal spot for its new campus. "Getting from 238 to 20 was very tough - all the proposals showed tremendous enthusiasm and creativity", said Holly Sullivan, Amazon Public Policy.

No matter which metro area Amazon selects for HQ2, the big victor when it comes the boom in air traffic is likely to be another Seattle-based company: Alaska Airlines. "Through this process we learned about many new communities across North America that we will consider as locations for future infrastructure investment and job creation".
