+ - Lawmaker seeks 'virtual Congress' with telecommuting plan->

Submitted by schwit1
schwit1 writes: Rep. Steve Pearce (R-N.M.) wants to create a "virtual Congress," where lawmakers would leverage videoconferencing and other remote work technology to conduct their daily duties in Washington from their home districts.

Under a resolution Pearce introduced on Thursday, lawmakers would be able to hold hearings, debate and vote on legislation virtually from their district offices.

The big loser would be the DC area and K Street in particular. The change would also be a double-edged sword for security.
