A follow up to Budget Buster...
















Seems that my idea, although not unique nor all that new, is gaining momentum...

Excerpts from the Federal News Radio program...

Also WTOP news reviewed this topic as well...

Berry said he did manage to find a silver lining in the cloud, however. He told Federal News Radio that he spoke personally with President Obama about increasing the federal teleworking workforce, and thinks last week will serve as a great example as to why quick action is needed.

Some federal agencies last week took advantage of existing telework policies with success.

The Patent and Trademark Office told Federal News Radio that it had a record number of people teleworking during the worst of the storm on Wednesday, Feb. 10.

Rep. Gerry Connolly (D.-Va.) spoke with The Federal Drive on Thursday morning and explained that he thinks a lot more federal employees should be authorized to telework, and that some of the current policies should be changed.

Not everyone thinks the change will happen as quickly as Director Berry hopes.

Chuck Wilsker, President and CEO of the Telework Coalition talked with The Daily Debrief on Thursday afternoon. He said that he doesn't think changing the government's workplace policies on telecommuting is as easy as it sounds.
