Van Hollen Secures $375M for New FBI Headquarters in Senate FSGG Appropriations Bill

Today, U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), Chairman of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government (FSGG) released the following statement regarding the inclusion of $375 million in funding for a new FBI Headquarters within the passage of the Committee’s Fiscal Year 2024 funding legislation by the full Senate Appropriations Committee:

“The FBI is in desperate need of a new, consolidated headquarters that can meet the security and mission requirements of the Bureau. And after years of working together with agencies across the federal government as well as members of Team Maryland, our state and local governments, and stakeholders across the region, we’ve finally reached the red zone. Despite Republican theatrics in the House, I was proud to work on a bipartisan basis to include this funding within our Subcommittee bill – and was glad to receive bipartisan support from the full Committee for its passage. I’m committed to keeping this project on track, and I will continue fighting to deliver the new headquarters that our nation’s law enforcement requires and bring that headquarters to Maryland.”
