Sen. Keaveny to Present Legislation Encouraging NGA to Stay in St. Louis

Jefferson City — Missouri Senate Minority Floor Leader Joseph Keaveny, D-St. Louis, will present Senate Concurrent Resolution 58 at 9 a.m., Tuesday, February 2, to the Senate Rules, Joint Rules, Resolutions and Ethics Committee in the Senate Lounge. Senate Concurrent Resolution 58 urges the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency to be built in north St. Louis City.

Due to aging buildings, limited room for expansion and increasing security concerns, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency West Campus Headquarters (NGA West), now located in the southern area of St. Louis, is currently considering a site in the region for a new facility.

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) is the nation’s primary source of geospatial intelligence for the Department of Defense and the U.S. Intelligence Community.
