Decentralizing certain federal agencies and relocating them closer to the areas (and people) they’re supposed to be serving has been a Trump administration priority. However, some federal employees have problems with it, as evidenced by this AP report:
Employees of the nation's public lands agency are quitting rather than move to the U.S. West as the Trump administration breaks up the headquarters in Washington, D.C., opponents warn. https://t.co/4cbTT4tt5J

These Beltway bureaucrats love the nation’s public lands and those who use them so much they don’t want to be anywhere near either of them. https://t.co/3CYvMzGBZL

Some “civil servants” don’t seem to want to be very close to the people and places they’re supposedly serving!
This is working exactly the way it should. https://t.co/vje4lxe1ZB

We should move the Department of Justice headquarters to Wyoming. https://t.co/sOvekLxGxJ

As it should be since most all public lands are west of the Mississippi. https://t.co/anD4Gj9abe

Makes perfect sense. Almost all the BLM land is in the west. Management should improve. Or they should turn it over to the states. https://t.co/V1oFlPNEQ5

We should break up all federal departments and move them out of DC.

That would be a big start in the effort to make DC less swampy.
