Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri says he wants federal employees to resume in-person work. 

Hawley sent a letter to the Office of Management and Budget and the Office of Personnel Management calling for federal agencies to resume in-person work at field offices. In the letter, Hawley said that over the past few weeks his constituents have reported that certain federal offices have been unresponsive. Hawley said he believes that’s due to remote working policies.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many federal offices ceased on-site work. Hawley said in the letter that the widespread availability of vaccines helped him arrive at this position.
