CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Virginia Senator Mark Warner says he is confident that the new FBI headquarters should be, and will be moved to the Commonwealth as opposed to Maryland.

He says putting the new headquarters in Springfield, Virginia would have it closer to many different FBI facilities and assets. He also says it is important for this new building to be in a place that has equal opportunity.

“In Springfield, you’ve got a community that is majority minority. It is a community when you add in eastern Prince William, where Quantico is and parts of the city of Alexandria are, it really looks like the face of Virginia and the face of America,” Warner said.

The General Services Administration and FBI will hear from both Virginia and Maryland one last time before making a final decision.
