On Tuesday evening, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) introduced S.Res. 633, a Senate resolution to ensure that the U.S. Postal Service remains a governmental service and is not subject to privatization. As introduced, the resolution earned the bipartisan cosponsorship of 27 Senators.
S.Res 633 is the Senate companion to H.Res. 933, which presently has 190 cosponsors. Both measures point out that postal privatization, as being proposed by the White House, would result in higher postage rates, reduce service to rural communities, jeopardize e-commerce, and cripple a part of America’s infrastructure.
UPMA members should call their Senators and Representative to cosponsors either H.Res 993 or S. Res. 633, if they have already not done so. (Use the provided links above to determine if your Representative or Senator is a cosponsor.) The number of the U.S. Capitol Switchboard is 202-224-3121.
