Maryland is trying its best to lure the FBI’s headquarters to the state. 

The Washington Post reports that Maryland and Prince George County have pledged to commit hundreds of millions of dollars on road improvements if the FBI relocates from downtown Washington to Greenbelt or Landover.

Support has also come from the state’s congressional delegation.

Maryland is locked in a tight competition for the headquarters with Springfield in Fairfax County.

The headquarters will bring an estimated 11,000 FBI jobs.

Prince George County is trying to sweeten its deal to attract the FBI’s new headquarters, the Washington Post reports.

A committee of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority is expected to vote Thursday on whether to offer the FBI 78 acres at the Greenbelt station to bolster a relocation deal.

The Post wrote that land is enticing because it currently has more than 3,700 parking spaces and 17 bus bays, which could be made available for the FBI.

The bureau is looking for a new headquarters because it’s current one in Washington D.C. is inadequate and falling apart.

The FBI hopes to trade its current headquarters for a new location.

 A judge ruled Thursday that authorities must release from a psychiatric hospital a former Marine under FBI investigation for posting anti-government messages on Facebook, the Washington Times reports.

Prince George County Circuit Judge W. Allan Sharrett ordered the release of Brandon Raub because there was not sufficient basis to hold him.

Raub, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, came under FBI investigation after people reported he wrote anti-government messages on Facebook, according to the Washington Post.

Family and supporters said the FBI and magistrate trampled his First Amendment Rights.
