From the Summary and Background: "S. 4138, the Telework for U.S. Innovation Act, removes the statutory expiration date for the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office's (PTO) telework travel expenses program and requires a permanent annual report to Congress. [...] In the Telework Enhancement Act of 2010, Congress established a test program under which the PTO 'may pay any travel expenses of an employee for travel to and from a [PTO] worksite or provide an employee with the option to waive any payment authorized' under the program under certain conditions. Pursuant to this authority, the PTO launched the Telework Enhancement Act Pilot Program (TEAPP) in February 2012."
