WHEREAS, Increasing traffic congestion is a source of aggravation to many
commuters and has a negative effect on air quality and energy conservation; and

WHEREAS, Alternatives should be explored that attempt to slow the growth of, or
possibly reduce, traffic congestion; and

WHEREAS, "Telecommuting" - using telecommunications technology to work at a
location other than a traditional office setting - may reduce pollution and save fuel
consumption; and

WHEREAS, Telecommuting could broaden the available workpool to include
nontraditional or low participation groups such as handicapped individuals, the elderly,
single parents, and other individuals who have difficulty in dealing with traditional
working hours and commuting patterns; and

WHEREAS, Telecommuting has the potential to bring more jobs to rural areas and
to economically depressed areas of the State; and

WHEREAS, Telecommuting could decrease costs for program participants in the
areas of transportation, parking, clothing, food, and child or elder care and improve the
situation with regard to "latchkey" children; and
