Lawmakers are expected to consider a bill to expand teleworking in the federal government. Maryland Congressman John Sarbanes tells Federal News Radio his legislation enjoys wide bipartisan support, and is expected to pass easily in the House later today.
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.
