CHICAGO — Today, U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) Administrator Denise Turner Roth announced plans for major repair and alteration projects outlined in President Obama’s fiscal year 2017 budget request. The proposed budget focuses on tackling our region’s greatest challenges by improving and strengthening existing federal infrastructure in metropolitan communities. This request will allow for safer, modernized buildings that optimize existing space and encourage continued development.

GSA Administrator Denise Turner Roth said the President’s budget encourages GSA’s mission to strengthen and develop existing federal infrastructure:
“GSA strives to provide the highest safety standards while taking innovative steps toward positive improvements for our tenants.

Through Congress’ approval of the 2017 budget proposal, we can look forward to the peace of mind afforded by safe and reliable federal buildings and ongoing support for GSA’s mission to become an Economic Catalyst.”
