In the face of recent administration efforts to cut back on federal employee telework, Reps. Gerry Connolly, D-Va., and John Sarbanes, D-Md., introduced legislation July 26 that would prevent agencies from instituting policies that limit telework participation.... “Federal government telework programs not only improve productivity, but also save taxpayer money by increasing efficiency, strengthening employee retention and reducing costs for federal office space, as numerous studies have demonstrated,” said Sarbanes, who was also an author of the Telework Enhancement Act of 2010.... We must push back against the Trump administration’s repeated attacks on federal telework programs, which make our government work better for the American people.”
