WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) celebrated House passage of the FY2023 Minibus legislation, which secures $500 million for construction of the new, consolidated FBI Headquarters that Congressman Hoyer and other members of the Congressional Delegation lauded last month. The federal package includes language that requires the Administration to use this and previous federal spending on a new, fully consolidated FBI Headquarters at one of the three sites currently under consideration by GSA: two Maryland sites, Greenbelt and Landover, and one site in Virginia, Springfield. This funding comes at a critical moment for the FBI project, with a site selection imminent in September.
“We are closer than ever before in having a new, consolidated FBI Headquarters in Maryland,” said Congressman Hoyer, “and this legislation secures much-needed funding so that when the time comes, we can get moving on construction of the new site. Making sure Prince George’s County is home to a brand new FBI Headquarters that can meet its security needs has been a priority of mine for a long time, and I will continue fighting to make sure that it becomes a reality. As the process for a site selection continues, I will work alongside my colleagues in the Maryland Delegation, as well as leaders in our community, to advocate for Maryland as the most suitable option for the FBI.”
Earlier this year, the Maryland Delegation secured language in the FY2022 Omnibus that restarted the process for selecting a site for a new, fully consolidated FBI headquarters at one three sites previously under consideration - Greenbelt, Landover, and Springfield. GSA is currently reviewing the three sites and expected to make a final site selection this Fall. In addition, President Biden's 2023 Budget included a provision calling for a 7,500 employee campus that provides a suitable and secure headquarters that allows the FBI to protect our national security.
