Rep. Jason Chaffetz Seeks to Relocate Federal Offices Out of Washington Via New Measure

Jason Chaffetz

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, has introduced a measure that seeks to facilitate the relocation of federal agencies outside of Washington.

The House resolution Divest DC aims to identify and evaluate agencies that could be moved out of Washington, which has one of the “highest median incomes” in the U.S., Chaffetz’ office said in a Jan. 10 news release.

“This resolution is the first step toward decentralizing federal agencies and initiating a process that shares the wealth of stable federal jobs with other communities across the United States,” Chaffetz said.

“I look forward to working with my colleagues on legislation to identify locations where these agencies can best serve the American people.”
