The Council of the District of Columbia finds that:

(1) Pursuant to § 10-1301, the Council has the exclusive authority to determine the use, management, maintenance, operation, repair, renovation, security, lease, and sale or other disposition of the building located at 1350 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W., known as the John A. Wilson Building (“Wilson Building”).

(2) The Wilson Building is the traditional seat of local government located on Pennsylvania Avenue, the “Main Street” of the Nation's Capital, and a source of pride and hope for our District residents.

(3) The Wilson Building is in need of renovation and restoration and contains environmental conditions which should be eliminated to provide a safe and healthy working environment and to ensure compliance with all federal and local building regulations.

(4) Because of the current fiscal state of the District government, funds are not available to make expenditures estimated at $47.1 million to $60 million to renovate and restore the Wilson Building.
