Last chance for states to put in bid for 777X contract

SEATTLE -- States interested in landing Boeing's 777X contract have until Tuesday to submit their bids.

More than a dozen states are fighting for the chance to build the new jet.

Texas, Georgia and Washington are top contenders but California, Alabama and Missouri are also being considered, according to the Everett Herald.

Many analysts still believe Everett is the best fit for 777X production. Boeing plans to make a decision in early 2014.
