The House approved a bill that would create government-wide regulations for teleworking.
Having failed to gain passage in late May, Maryland Congressman John Sarbanes is predicting success this time for his bill to expand teleworking in the federal government. Sarbanes' bill could be considered by the full House as early as Wednesday.
The House on Thursday voted down HR 1722, the Telework Improvements Act. It would have greatly expand the ability of federal workers to telework. The bill failed because the measure failed to win a two-thirds majority of the lawmakers voting.
