washington - The American government wants to raise more than two billion dollars for the construction of a new office for the FBI.
The Congress still has to approve the plans. The FBI itself has already earmarked 1.2 billion dollars for the new accommodation, which has to be built almost in the same place as the old one.
The total costs for the new building have been estimated at around three billion dollars. The old building dates from the seventies. In some places nets are stretched to catch falling stones.
We have been looking for a new location for the FBI for years. This summer it was decided to build a new building in the old place. The money that President Donald Trump wants to donate to the FBI comes from the 1.5 trillion dollars that the government wants to invest for infrastructure.
