President Obama signed into a law today the bipartisan telework bill that enhances telework opportunities for federal employees.
“We’re talking about bringing the government into the 21st century from a technology point of view and every other point of view,” bill sponsor Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) told Federal News Radio last month after the House passed its version of the bill. The Senate had passed similar legislation in September.
Rep. John Sarbanes (D-Md.), one of the bill sponsors, said the legislation will be a key in recruiting and retaining the “best and brightest workers.”
