Colorado plans to submit formal bid for Amazon second headquarters

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Colorado plans to submit a formal bid on behalf of the Denver metropolitan area for Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) to open its second headquarters, a state official told Reuters on Thursday.

Amazon said earlier in the day it would build a $5 billion second headquarters in North America, kicking off a competition between cities and states to offer tax cuts and other incentives that could bring 50,000 new jobs.
