SACRAMENTO (CBS13/AP) – Amazon has announced 20 finalist cities in the race for its second headquarters.

Sacramento, which some analysts have said could be a dark horse candidate for HQ2, did not make the list.

The only California city to make the list is Los Angeles.

Amazon plans to invest $5 billion in the new headquarters and could employ as many as 50,000 people in and around the city it chooses. Cities are in fierce competition to lure Amazon, and the company said last year that it received 238 proposals.

Amazon.com Inc. said it will make a final selection sometime this year.

    Amazon, Is making a BIG Mistake concentrating largely in the Northeast; this area although heavily populated is a cesspool of grid locks, poor infrastructures with constantly never ending constructions impeding traffic, work & local economies; definitely a hub of Chaos !! And Those who had made up this here list may have to begin tweeking their Resume’s but i would leave out the list thang. Nothing is FREE en los Estados Unidos, so a consult fee is appreciated, applied & expected!
