Although I support the general ideas expressed in the bill, I find that the bill does not address the issue of employees who may be required to work from home, but who may not be issued a government personal computer upon which to do that work.

In such cases, the government would be telling an employee what software he or she could install/use on his or her personal computer, which is wholly unacceptable.

I suggest that the bill should be revised to provide that employees who may be required to work from home must be issued government personal computers upon which to perform that work.
