FTC Being Evicted

Federal Trade Commission members objected to a plan to force the agency out of its historic building. The four members, two from each party, wrote to John Mica, chairman of the House committee on transportation and infrastructure, calling the plan a $100 million giveaway. Mica wants to move the FTC to leased space and the National Gallery of Art into the FTC building. FTC Commissioner Jon Liebovitz said it would be the first time an agency was evicted from a federally-owned building that suits it. The structure at 600 Pennsylvania Ave. was built during President Franklin D. Roosevelt's administration specifically for the FTC.
