The District's chief financial officer said Tuesday that his office will soon begin studying the fiscal consequences of the FBI moving its headquarters from Pennsylvania Avenue.

During a breakfast meeting with Mayor Vincent Gray and the D.C. Council, Natwar Gandhi said his office would try to finish the review within two months.

Gandhi's commitment came days before Gray is slated to detail his pitch to keep the nation's most famous crime-fighting agency within the District. Last week, city officials said the mayor would propose moving the FBI to Poplar Point.

Jurisdictions in Maryland and Virginia are also competing to house the FBI, which has outgrown the J. Edgar Hoover Building.
