Senate Bill Would Permit Remote Work for All Eligible Federal Employees through the Pandemic

This caught my eye on several fronts. Senator Chris Van Hollen, who represents me in the Senate, is one of the senators putting forth the legislation. I'm married to a federal employee (who is currently teleworking). And, I believe this is important legislation that supports those in the federal workforce, particularly those at health risk during the pandemic.  also believe this legislation, if passed, has implications beyond just those employed by the Federal Government.

While it's only just been introduced as legislation, I hope it leads to positive discussions in support of the health of the federal workforce and remote work for them and for all employees.
