Offer all federal employees the opportunity to telework/telecommute. Even though some federal agencies are offering this to there employees there are still many agencies that frown on telework for whatever reason. I think if it became mandatory that all agencies offered this opportunity to their employees this would be a huge savings to the federal government. If all employees were permitted to work from home 3 days a week the energy savings to the federal government would be tremendous. Also, it would save employees more then $1,000/year in commuting costs and nearly 2,000 pounds of emissions.
