Decen- ! tralization, in terms used by gov- j ernment officials, would be transferring agencies and units to other cities rather than into areas near Washington. Sasscer said he is opposed to decentralization because he is against any ''dismantling of agencies in Washington as the national cap- i ital." Decentralization, he added, also would be "far more expensive." i Rep. Beall (R-Md), part of whose ] district also is involved, could not | be reached for comment.
