Washington, D.C.—Rep. Mike Bost (IL-12) released the following statement expressing his frustration with the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency’s final decision to locate its new west campus in North St. Louis:

“NGA’s final decision is as disappointing as the methods they used to achieve it,” said Bost.  “It appears that this result was baked in long ago, despite nearly every objective metric being in St. Clair County’s favor.  I’m currently reviewing NGA’s record of decision and the justifications they used for a process that has yielded more questions than answers from the very beginning.”
