Lack of funds kills plan for FBI move

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - NATIONAL -

WASHINGTON — The na­tion’s top law en­force­ment agency will con­tinue op­er­at­ing out of its de­te­ri­o­rat­ing down­town Washington head­quar­ters for the fore­see­able fu­ture af­ter the fed­eral gov­ern­ment an­nounced Tues­day that it had scrapped a decade-long plan to look for a new FBI build­ing in Mary­land or Vir­ginia.

The Gen­eral Ser­vices Ad­min­is­tra­tion, which over­sees fed­eral of­fice space, said it does not have enough money to move for­ward on a new lo­ca­tion.

The agency had sought $1.4 bil­lion for the project, but Congress left it un­der­funded by about $882 mil­lion.
