Leaders in our region grapple with the debate around Confederate symbols after Charlottesville. We speak to D.C. Councilmember David Grosso (At-large, I), chair of the Education Committee and U.S. Rep. Tom Garrett (R-Va.)
Federal officials took regional leaders by surprise this week when they announced a halt to the search for a new site for the FBI headquarters, currently located in an aging building on Pennsylvania Avenue. The two finalists in the current process –Prince George’s and Fairfax counties– each hoped to win the 11,000 FBI jobs and hundreds of millions in development dollars. We get the regional reaction, including why the District could ultimately benefit if the search for a new FBI home starts from scratch.
