Wondering if federal agencies (e.g., IRS, Dept of Agriculture, etc.) could physically be moved out of Washington DC? What if the IRS, for example, was relocated to Duluth MN or Elko NV, etc.). Or Dept of Agriculture to Guymon OK. You get the picture... Advantages? Disadvantages?

As for advantages - deconstruction and dispersal of federal bureaucracy? (If you want to work for the IRS, you'd have to move to and live in Duluth). Would also make the federal government more redundant in, say, a time of war? As for disadvantages - obviously the cost of accomplishing this?
