Virginia leaders request pause on FBI headquarters relocation

Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine along with nine bipartisan Representatives from Virginia sent a letter to the U.S. Office of Management and Budget requesting the FBI headquarters relocation process be paused.

This will allow the Office of the Inspector General time to properly investigate the site selection process after questions were raised following the recommendation of Greenbelt, Maryland by a panel last month.

In November, lawmakers sent a letter requesting an investigation into significant concerns about the site selection process being affected by political interference and alleged impropriety.

This concern was echoed by Christopher Wray, Director of the FBI.

Virginia politicians have been making a case for the Commonwealth over the last few months citing the diverse and developed workforce, proximity to critical national security facilities, and easy access to transit.
