State Ozone Alert = Special Telecommute Day

Since every State issues special ozone/smog/air quality alerts during the year when weather creates unacceptable pollution levels, allow employees with pre-approved part-time telecommute status to telecommute on state-designated ozone alert days as well (this is usually about 13 days per year per weather air quality metrics). This will save energy costs at the employee's work site, reduce highway commute congestion, reduce C02 emissions by several tons per employee, and help the environment when air quality is at its most sensitive and vulnerable level.
