ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland Gov. Wes Moore and members of the state’s congressional delegation are renewing their pitch to build a new FBI headquarters in Maryland instead of Virginia.

Moore and Maryland lawmakers met with representatives of the General Services Administration and FBI on Wednesday. The Maryland officials noted it would cost taxpayers at least $1 billion more to build in Virginia and take longer. Plans to replace the J. Edgar Hoover Building in Washington, D.C. have been under discussion for 15 years.

The GSA has named three finalist sites: Springfield, Virginia; Greenbelt, Maryland; and Landover, Maryland.
