Ballwin, MO – Following today’s announcement that the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency’s West headquarters would remain in Missouri, Congresswoman Ann Wagner (R-MO-02) released the below statement:

"I am hopeful that today's announcement will put an end to the regional debate of the new NGA West Headquarters. More importantly, I am pleased that the more than 2,000 employees who currently live in Missouri will remain in close proximity to the new headquarters. St. Louis has the best technological, academic, and professional environment for the agency, and I am thrilled the NGA will continue to perform its critical role in our national security within a community that understands its needs and strongly supports its mission."
