Republican Senators Introduce Bill To Move 90 Percent Of Federal Jobs Out Of DC

Two Republican senators are proposing to move a lot of federal jobs out of DC.

This is not a bad idea.

One way to drain the swamp is to decentralize it.

GOP Senators Introduce Legislation to Move 90 Percent of Federal Jobs out of DC

Two Republican senators have introduced a bill that would see the majority of federal agency jobs move out of Washington, D.C., to economically distressed areas, in a bid to create local jobs across the country.

Sponsored by U.S. Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) and Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), the bill titled the “Helping Infrastructure Restore the Economy (HIRE) Act” will relocate most federal agencies out of the nation’s capital in a move which the pair say will boost local economies and save taxpayers’ money in the long term by slashing costs.

News of the bill comes a day after Hawley received criticism for backing the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) decision to relocate two sub-agencies to Kansas City, Missouri.

In a press release, Hawley cites the plans as well as the Bureau Land Management’s (BLM) recent decision to move to Colorado, saying the bill would “boost this trend” so the “benefits of those jobs are more widely distributed” throughout “economically distressed regions.”

“Every year, Americans’ hard-earned tax dollars fund federal agencies that are mainly located in the D.C. bubble. That’s a big part of the problem with Washington: they’re too removed from the rest of America,” Hawley said.

The establishment will fight this tooth and nail.

They better be ready for a fight.

The swamp doesn’t want to be drained.
