COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Maryland officials are gathering to push for relocating a new FBI headquarters in the state.
Top federal, state and local officials are scheduled Monday to promote Prince George’s County as the new location at an event at the University of Maryland, College Park.
Gov. Martin O’Malley and Rep. Steny Hoyer are scheduled to attend. Sens. Barbara Mikulski and Ben Cardin also are scheduled to participate. Rushern Baker, the county executive, is scheduled to attend as well.
Officials say the FBI headquarters is estimated to be a $2 billion economic development project and home to 11,000 jobs.
