LEGISLATION INTRODUCED WHICH WOULD STUDY RELOCATING AGENCIES OUT OF DC - April 24, 2017
Democratic Congressman Wants to Move More Agencies Out of D.C., Too
By Erich Wagner, Government Executive
Utah Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz’s days in Washington may be numbered, but another lawmaker already has taken up his idea to move more federal agencies out of the nation’s capital.
Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, on Thursday introduced the Federal Government Decentralization Commission Act (H.R. 2112), which would establish a commission within the General Services Administration to study the relocation of federal agencies outside of the Washington, D.C., region and submit a plan on the issue to Congress by September 2019.
