State rep wants Boeing plant in Decatur

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — An Illinois lawmaker says he wants Boeing Co. to build a new manufacturing plant in Decatur.

The Springfield bureau of Lee Enterprises Newspapers reports Forsyth Republican Rep. Bill Mitchell is hoping the Chicago-based aerospace company will build its new factory in the central Illinois community.

Boeing is looking for a location to build its new 400-seat 777X jetliner.

Boeing is looking at a $7 billion to $10 billion plant that would start with 3,250 workers in 2018 and grow to 8,500 by 2024.

Mitchell says Decatur has “great manufacturing capacity and a highly skilled workforce.”

Several other states also submitted offers by Tuesday’s deadline. They include Missouri, Alabama and California.

Boeing officials are expected to announce the new plant’s location early next year.
