Intelligence Director Rejects Overturning Spy Agency Relocation Plan

St. Louis, MO (KTRS) – The director of national intelligence says he doesn’t plan to overturn a subordinate’s preliminary decision to build a federal spy agency’s new regional headquarters in north St. Louis rather than relocate to Illinois.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that James Clapper said Monday that he has “no basis” to reject the recommendation by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency Director Robert Cardillo.

Illinois officials continue to lobby for a reversal of Cardillo’s decision. A final decision is expected by early June.

The agency plans to move from its current location near the Anheuser-Busch brewery south of downtown St. Louis to a site on the city’s north side.

Illinois politicians sought to convince the federal government to instead move to a location near Scott Air Force Base in St. Clair County.
