A group of House Democrats is seeking to increase pressure on U.S. Postal Service leadership to force a pause on changes that have slowed mail delivery while increasing prices, calling for a probe into the strategy.
The lawmakers, led by Rep. Kweisi Mfume, D-Md., introduced a resolution (H.Con.Res. 54) voicing objections to reforms implemented by Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, saying they would disproportionately impact vulnerable communities and damage the mailing agency. The measure would call on DeJoy to delay rate hikes and mail slowdowns until he completes a “full substantiation” of his plan and Congress carries out “further investigation.”
