Officials are making a bid to bring Amazon's second headquarters to Baton Rouge.

The Baton Rouge Area Chamber says the city does not meet all of the criteria being sought by the online retailer, which include having one million residents or have an international airport.

Despite that, the Council is urging the company to consider the "business-friendly environment" of East Baton Rouge for the headquarters.
