Move to Replace FBI Headquarters Inches Closer to Reality
The legendary but outdated FBI headquarters building in in the nation’s capital moved a step closer to its demise.
The Washington Post reports that the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works passed a resolution late last week authorizing the General Service Administration to find a consolidated headquarters. The Post reported that the resolution is subject to approval by Congress and subject to appropriations.
The headquarters building on Pennsylvania Avenue NW, in the shadow of the Capitol, is burst at the seams.
Before Sept. 11, 9,700 headquarters staffers worked at seven locations; now there are about 17,300 employees and contractors at 40 sites across the nation, 22 in the Washington area, according to the Post.
The Post reported that the resolution said that the government would have to own the land and the location would have to be within two miles of a Metrorail station and 2.5 miles from the Beltway.
