HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania is among the states hoping to compete for a Boeing aircraft assembly plant.

Department of Community and Economic Development spokesman Steve Kratz said on Wednesday that the company contacted the state on Tuesday, asking for proposals to attract a plant to build the 777X aircraft.

Kratz said the state is looking at what it might offer as a competitive proposal that takes into account the use of taxpayer dollars.

The number of potential jobs makes Gov. Tom Corbett very interested, he said.
