Homeland Security's New Home Through The Roof
Delays in building the new Homeland Security Department headquarters are driving up the price of the project by at least half a billion dollars. Federal Times obtained the cost estimates. Budget cuts have caused a year's worth of delays in construction at the former St. Elizabeth's hospital site. The original plan accounts for $3.4 billion to build the DHS operations hub by 2016. Now the project could cost nearly $4 billion and take until fiscal 2021 to complete.
