Cardin, Mikulski, Hoyer, Edwards: Prince George’s County Is The Right Choice For FBI Headquarters

WASHINGTON, DC –U.S. Senators Ben Cardin and Barbara A. Mikulski (both D-MD), Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-5), and Congresswoman Donna F. Edwards (MD-4) released the following statement today after the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) released a Request for Interest for the new location of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) headquarters:


“Today, the GSA issued a Request for Interest for the new location of the FBI headquarters, which lays out certain requirements for the project and will help identify sites available in our region. With a significant portion of the federal workforce living in Maryland and ample land available near Metro stations, it’s clear Prince George’s County is the right choice for the new headquarters. The project would bring thousands of jobs to the County, boost our local economy, and generate additional revenues for our community. As the process continues to move forward, we will be working closely together to advocate for bringing this project, and the new economic opportunities that will accompany it, to Prince George’s County.”
