Package Coalition Statement on Bipartisan Senate Letter Calling for Postal Service Emergency Relief

Washington, D.C. - Package Coalition Chairman John McHugh issued the following statement in response to the bipartisan letter sent by Senators Susan Collins (R-ME), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Tom Carper (D-DE), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Jon Tester (D-MT), Steve Daines (R-MT), Doug Jones (D-AL), Dan Sullivan (R-AK), Chris Coons (D-DE) and Pat Roberts (R-KS) urging  Senate Leadership to include emergency funding for the United States Postal Service in any future COVID-19 relief legislation: 

“The Package Coalition is encouraged to see these Senators working across the aisle to ensure the United States Postal Service can continue to operate its unmatched delivery network through these challenging times. It is not a partisan issue to ensure that seniors can continue receiving their medications, for rural Americans to continue to have access to delivery services or for the Postal Service to continue playing its role as an economic lifeline to small businesses and Americans across the country. Congress should include emergency relief to USPS as it continues to meet its mandate to serve the public during this pandemic.”
