California will be among several states submitting bids to Boeing this week in an effort to land a production facility for the company's newest commercial jetliner.
An official for Gov. Jerry Brown's Office of Business and Economic Development, or GO-Biz, told The Sacramento Bee that California will submit a proposal to Boeing ahead of the company's deadline today for states to submit proposals to host production of the 777X.
California officials have been tight-lipped about what incentives they are offering to convince Boeing to build its new plane in the state.
Boeing has been turning out C-17s at its Long Beach plant but production is due to stop in 2015.
Supporters point out that Long Beach has easy rail, port and freeway access and a trained aviation workforce.
