Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., has offered legislation to require agencies in the Washington, D.C. area to provide subsidies to their employees of up to $65 a month for taking public transit—including van pools–during their commuting. The White House has had an executive order to compel general use of the subsidies under consideration for many months. Wolf’s bill would compel that order to be issued. He has the backing of two other Washington-area House members who are active in federal employee issues, Reps. Constance Morella, R-Md., and Thomas Davis, R-Va.
