Senator Feinstein Prepares Legislation to Address Reform of the United States Postal Service

Senator Dianne Feinstein is currently in the process of crafting legislation that would authorize the United States Postal Service (USPS) to enter into agreements with any agency of a state, local, or tribal government to provide services at a USPS location if those services provide enhanced value to the public.

Examples of services that would be included are: hunting, fishing, and trapping licenses; DMV services; land use applications; and recreation permits. The legislation is designed to benefit rural areas, particularly, those that do not have physical locations for state services but do have post office locations.

RCRC has conveyed its support for this effort to reform the USPS (it continues to have financial challenges) that preserves access for rural communities.
