OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska officials say they are willing to offer ConAgra Foods economic incentives to persuade the company to keep its headquarters in Omaha.

Gov. Pete Ricketts tells the Omaha World-Herald (https://bit.ly/1YN5qg3 ) he has talked to ConAgra CEO Sean Connolly about a possible new state aid package.

Company employees and investors are waiting to hear what changes Connolly plans at the packaged food company. He told shareholders that the company would likely announce job cuts and some reorganization moves this week.

ConAgra is expected to cut jobs in Omaha and expand its presence in Chicago. Omaha leaders are concerned that the company headquarters might move as well.

The company has around 3,000 employees at the headquarters campus in Omaha, in Lincoln and across the Missouri River in Council Bluffs, Iowa.
