The Federal Bureau of Investigation reversed itself on a nearly decade-long demand to move its headquarters out of the J. Edgar Hoover Building in downtown Washington, D.C., for greener pastures in the suburbs. Instead the FBI is now proposing building a new facility on the same plot on Pennsylvania Avenue and shipping some 2,300 employees to other facilities around the country. If Congress approves the Trump administration’s infrastructure plan, the FBI will have a total of $3.3 billion to replace the Hoover Building, which opened in 1974 and no longer meets many security requirements. [Washington Post]
