I'll note that there is in fact a significant, concerted effort (and has been for about a month now) to move houses out of the VA footprint beyond the eight in the VA moving program. A number of major local and national non-profits are involved. So, for any skeptics reading, know that this isn't simply an attempt to delay for delay's sake.
