Allow more flex time/telework and let's make a virtual government

I suggest we make better use of the flex policy. As an example, the amount of telework days are limited to one per week for this office. I propose that there are some weeks where I could have worked every day from home. I understand that there are some weeks when I need to be in the office but we should allow the worker and supervisor the flexibility to make that decision. My personal savings each day I work from home is approximately 5.7 gallons of gas ($14), equal to 111 lbs of CO2 equivalent green house gas emissions. This does not include savings on light and utilities in the office. Allow more flex time and let's make a virtual government and reduce commuting costs and overhead.
