If one transfers within the same grade and have to move to another state to assume a job in USDA, is there room to negotiate salary to a higher step:

Nope...you will be at the same grade/step in the new locality (which could result in your pay changing up or down depending on whether the new location has a higher or lower locality percentage).

Thank you— even if the cost of living is higher in the new area?

Yes. If I was reassigned to an RUS area my pay would decrease; if I was reassigned to DC, it would jump. No change to the grade/step, just the pay is set according to that area.
The excuse of, "I read it on FederalSoup..." won't work. Please do your due diligence.

That is what the different locality rates are for. Move from DC to FL, even for a promotion could result in a lower pay due to the lower locality rate (but lower cost of living). Move from OK to NYC, your pay will go up even if you lateral.
