The Washington Post reports that the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works passed a resolution late last week authorizing the General Service Administration to find a consolidated headquarters.

Before Sept. 11, 9,700 headquarters staffers worked at seven locations; now there are about 17,300 employees and contractors at 40 sites across the nation, 22 in the Washington area, according to the Post.
