WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) slammed Washington bureaucrats who have yet to return to work while federal office buildings sit empty and wait times for public services continue to increase. Ernst highlighted the stark contrast between the Iowans she met during her 9th annual River to River Tour working hard to make ends meet and the countless federal employees who refuse to answer the call of duty on behalf of taxpayers.

To hold Washington accountable, Ernst is demanding the Inspector Generals of every major department and agency determine the impact of telework on the delivery and response times of services, how much taxpayer money could be saved by consolidating unused office space, and what steps have been taken to adjust bureaucrats’ location-based salaries for those who have relocated and chosen to remain out of the office.
