Not sure what it will be. But we have an idea. Probably it will have something to do with talking up the importance of DFW in landing another corporation in Texas. Extra tax breaks can be arranged for any company directing their media relations people to include lines such as that underscored below. Here is the item from the AP wire:

AP-TX--Fluor Move
Engineering giant plans to move headquarters to N. Texas

DALLAS (AP) _ Fluor Corporation has announced that it plans to move its corporate headquarters from Southern California to North Texas. The Fortune 500 engineering and construction firm says it chose the Dallas-Forth Worth area because of its central location and international airport. Fluor also wanted to be located closer to its major customers in Texas and on the East Coast, which makes up about 80 percent of its North American revenue. The company plans to move by early 2006. Based on revenue, Fluor would be the 13th largest firm based in North Texas. It employs about 30-thousand people worldwide in 25 countries.
