Micron Technology Inc. will announce where
the company will locate its computer-chip plant
today at 9:30 a.m.
Micron has said it would build a $ 1.3 billion,
3,500-employee plant in Omaha, Oklahoma
City or Utah County, Utah.
The company — based in Boise, Idaho —
trimmed their list of potential locations down to
three in February. The final announcement ini
tially was to come at the end of February, but
Micron has delayed its selection several times.
Nebraska legislators have passed three eco
nomic incentive laws aimed at luring Micron to
Omaha. The University of Nebraska also has
offered benefits for the company. Oklahoma
and Utah have also offered several incentive
packages to Micron.
Joe Jenkins, executive director of the Utah
Department of Community and Economic De
velopment, told The Associated Press that Utah
was “in the No. 1 spot” for the Micron plant.
