ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Economic Development Secretary Jon Barela says New Mexico is still in the running for a Tesla Motors battery plant.

Barela told lawmakers during a hearing Wednesday that Gov. Susana Martinez's administration is working very aggressively to try to lure the plant to New Mexico.

He says those efforts are being kept quiet at Tesla's request, but he assured the legislature's Economic and Rural Development Committee that "we are still very much in the game."

New Mexico, Arizona, Texas, Nevada and California are competing for Tesla Motors' planned battery plant, which will represent a $5 billion investment from the California-based car company and its partners.
