SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- State officials are offering more than $15 million in incentives to get software giant Oracle Corp. to expand in Utah.

The incentive was approved by the Governor's Office of Economic Development Board on Friday. It's aimed at locating a $260 million data-storage center in West Jordan. The operation would have about 100 full-time employees.

State officials said Utah isn't the only location under consideration by Oracle.

The state incentive package is contingent on West Jordan providing a local incentive.
