Package Coalition Thanks House For Overwhelming, Bipartisan Support of Postal Service Reform Act, Urges Quick Senate Action

Washington, DC - Today the U.S. House of Representatives passed the bipartisan Postal Service Reform Act (HR 3076) to support vital mail and package delivery for American consumers and businesses across the country. The strong bi-partisan 342-92 vote, including support from the leaders of both parties, sends the bill to the Senate, where the companion bill (S 1720) has pivotal bipartisan support.

“The Package Coalition thanks Chairwoman Maloney, Ranking Member Comer and the House’s 100 co-sponsors for ushering the Postal Service Reform Act to passage, preserving the affordable and reliable delivery services that Americans rely on. We encourage the Senate to quickly take up this legislation, keep mail and packages delivered together, and sustain the rural communities, small businesses and American consumers who benefit most from the Postal Service,” said Package Coalition chair John McHugh.

By codifying the Postal Service’s integrated delivery network to keep mail and packages delivered together, the bill maintains the efficiencies, affordable prices and universal service that is already so critical to Americans.  The Congressional Budget Office also concluded that the bipartisan Postal Service Reform Act will save the federal government $1.5 billion over 10 years.
