Business and political leaders in the Indianapolis-area announced Monday that the city will make a proposal for Amazon’s next headquarters. The group has 30 days to submit their proposal to the tech giant.

Indianapolis mayor Joe Hogsett made the announcement alongside Scott Fadness, mayor of Indy suburb Fishers. The bid to lure the Amazon headquarters to Indiana will be a region-wide effort, including nine counties.

The Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce is taking a stand against a proposal that would rewrite the state constitution to define marriage as only between a man and a woman.

Chamber president Michael Huber says the amendment is a distraction from economic and workforce development challenges. He believes if the General Assembly approves the proposal, it will have a negative impact on the city’s business climate.
