The Senate last week passed the conferenced Telework Enhancement Act of 2007 (H.R. 1722) and sent it back to the House for final approval. Both the House and Senate had previously passed similar bills earlier and met in conference to resolve the few differences. The bill makes teleworking opportunities available government-wide. It requires agencies to develop a teleworking policy and identify employees eligible to participate. The bill also gives agencies the authority to conduct telework travel expenses tests to pay travel expenses for teleworking employees who are required to report to the office more than a set number of times. This legislation has been strongly supported by federal employee organizations and the White House. The House will take up the bill when it returns in November after the elections and the president is expected to then quickly sign it.
