O'Malley lobbies Northrop CEO to move headquarters

March 27, 2010

Gov. Martin O'Malley called Northrop Grumman Corp.'s chief executive Friday to make the state's final case for why the giant defense contractor should move its headquarters to Maryland, rather than to Washington or Virginia. Aides did not provide details but said it's a "competitive" offer with incentives such as grants and tax credits. Northrop Grumman, now based in Los Angeles, has said it is considering locations throughout the Washington metro area and will probably make a decision in April. It now employs more than 40,000 in the region.
