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.

We get the regional reaction, including why the District could ultimately benefit if the search for a new FBI home starts from scratch.
