Delaney Urges FBI to Locate New Headquarters in Maryland
(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) WASHINGTON, March 24 -- Rep. John Delaney, D-Md. (6th CD), issued the following news release:
Congressman John K. Delaney (MD-6) issues the following statement on the efforts to bring the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) headquarters to Maryland:
"I stand alongside my Maryland colleagues in saying 'we're all in' on bringing the new FBI headquarters to Maryland. With immediate access to national and regional transportation networks, a world-class workforce, and proximity to Maryland's strong educational and research infrastructure, Prince George's County is the right place for the FBI. Maryland is already a home to the FBI - more FBI employees live in Maryland than in any other state - and the Prince George's County site would be surrounded by key law enforcement, cybersecurity, and military installations, including a secure airfield at Joint Base Andrews. Team Maryland is united on bringing the FBI to Prince George's County and I thank our statewide and local elected officials for their work to bring the FBI to Maryland. Relocating to Prince George's County isn't just good for Maryland; it's good for the country, as this is the most appropriate location for the new headquarters."
Last year, Delaney joined his Maryland colleagues in writing to Robert S. Mueller III, the Director of the FBI and Daniel M. Tangherlini, the Acting Administrator of the General Services Administration, encouraging them to locate the new headquarters in Maryland.http://www.mikulski.senate.gov/media/pressrelease/4-11-2013-2.cfm
