Maryland Wants To Bring FBI Headquarters To Prince George's

The Federal Bureau of Investigation needs a new headquarters, and Maryland officials are hoping to bring the agency into their state.

The agency has been based for the past 37 years at the J. Edgar Hoover Building in downtown Washington, and the building has presented myriad challenges in recent years. A recent report by the federal Government Accountability Office concluded the building is outdated and deteriorating.

The FBI estimates a new headquarters would cost $1.2 billion and would not be completed until 2020 at the earliest. But Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.)  tells The Baltimore Sun that site selection could begin as soon as next year 

Cardin says he's "very bullish" on the new headquarters being located in Maryland.
