Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos wants to make huge rockets in the Puget Sound area. The aerospace company Blue Origin is looking for new tax incentives to build their new large rocket called the BE-4. Reports say that rocket “using liquid oxygen and liquid methane propellants, has also been chosen by United Launch Alliance (ULA) — the Boeing/Lockheed Martin launch vehicle joint venture — to power the forthcoming Vulcan rocket that will replace the current Atlas V”.

Blue Origin already has an engineering headquarters in Kent and wants to build the rockets next to where they are designed. They expect hundreds of jobs to be crated from the plant, but first need to tax incentives before they build it.
