CONGRESSIONAL DELEGATION MEMBERS WELCOME PROGRESS ON PRINTING AND ENGRAVING PRODUCTION FACILITY IN MARYLAND
Today, U.S. Senators Chris Van Hollen and Ben Cardin and Congressmen Steny H. Hoyer and Anthony G. Brown (all D-Md.) released the following statement on the transfer of property from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Beltsville Agricultural Research Center to the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) – an important step toward the Bureau’s opening of a new currency production facility in Prince George’s County, Maryland.
“Maryland is proud to serve as the home of many of our nation’s vital federal agencies and thousands of civil servants who keep them running. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing has made an excellent choice in joining them and selecting Prince George’s County to host its new currency production facility,” the lawmakers said. “In addition to bringing new jobs to Maryland, the transition to this Beltsville location will enable the Bureau to upgrade its manufacturing capabilities. We look forward to working with the Bureau alongside our state and local partners to advance this project in an environmentally conscious manner that respects our local communities.”
