Congressman Gerry Connolly (D-VA) released the following statement after the General Services Administration (GSA) and FBI released a report recommending that the FBI headquarters remain at their current site:

“What an immense waste of time and resources. The only thing missing from this announcement was an apology. An apology to Virginia and Maryland for the time they spent developing site proposals. An apology to the FBI employees who will continue to work in the crumbling Hoover Building. And an apology to taxpayers for a procurement so bungled that we are at square one more than 5 years after GSA started this process. The most insulting aspect of this latest development is that the new plan released by the Trump Administration doesn’t even include a consolidated headquarters that can house all 11,000 of the FBI’s area employees. Has there ever been an issue more ripe for Congressional oversight? If the Majority can find its subpoena pen, we will find out.”
