Northern Virginia would provide easier access to the metropolitan region’s premier international gateway at Dulles International Airport.” The FBI’s current headquarters in the J. Edgar Hoover Building now houses only 52 percent of the FBI headquarters staff, Connolly noted, with the remainder currently “dispersed among 21 leased locations throughout the region.” Two other Northern Virginia House mem- bers—Reps. Frank Wolf (R) and Jim Moran (D)—offered similar testimony at the hearing touting their region. Wolf called the area “the logical choice.” The lawmakers said a number of loca- tions would satisfy the FBI’s needs. Connolly and Moran made particular mention of one federally owned site—the General Services Administration’s warehouse facility in Springfield, Va., which sits on about 70 acres. Connolly called the site “grossly underutilized.” Members of the Maryland delegation rep- resenting counties bordering the capital also appeared at the hearing to offer arguments in support of their state. Rep. Steny Hoyer (D.) cited a Maryland state study that showed 43 percent of FBI headquarters employees live in Maryland, while 33 percent live in Virginia and 17 percent in Washington, D.C.

The initiative is part of DOD’s Operation Live Well program, which is aimed at increasing the health and wellness of the total force— including military service members, family members and DOD civilians. Under the one-year demonstration project, DOD will assess the ability of the 13 pilot sites to create environments that enable sus- tainable healthy lifestyles. Best practices that emerge from the demonstration project will be shared throughout DOD. Specific efforts within the overall initia- tive will focus on nutritional food choices, increased physical activity, weight manage- ment and tobacco cessation, DOD said. The 11 military installations in the project include Fort Bragg, N.C.; Fort Sill, Okla.; Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii; Submarine Base New London, Conn.; Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho; Yokota Air Base, Japan; Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center/ Marine Air Ground Task Force Training Command, Twentynine Palms, Calif.; Marine Corps Base Quantico, Va.; Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod, Mass.; March Air Force Base, Calif.; and Camp Dodge, Iowa. The other two sites are the Defense Logistics Agency at Fort Belvoir, Va., and Defense Health Headquarters in Falls Church, Va.
