Bipartisan Postal Preservation Caucus Urges Leadership to Save USPS

Understanding the dire circumstances the Postal Service faces due to the COVID-19 pandemic a bipartisan group of House members formed the Postal Preservatin Caucus in order to better inform their colleagues on the struggles it currently faces and the need for financial assistance in the next stimulus package.

The first action the caucus took was to write to House and Senate leadership on the need for emergency funding as seen in the request from Postal Service leadership, stating, “The bipartisan Postal Service Board of Governors unanimously asked Congress to approve $25 billion in emergency appropriations to offset coronavirus-related losses, $25 billion for ‘shovel-ready’ projects to modernize the Postal Service, and access to $25 billion in unrestricted borrowing authority from Treasury. We strongly support emergency funding for the Postal Service and urge you to do the same.”
