21st Century Postal Service Act

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


Mr. PRYOR. Madam President, this, hopefully, will be a noncontroversial amendment.

Basically, it is a sense of the Senate that the Postal Service should not close any postal facilities or post offices until enactment of this postal reform bill.

So this is a sense of the Senate. The idea is we don't know exactly when the House is going to pass their bill, if they ever do. But we will have a sense of the Senate on the record.

The Postal Service's self-imposed moratorium expires May 15. Hopefully, this will give them time to extend this until a bill is passed. If this bill does pass--and I hope it does--this is a major reset for the Postal Service, and I hope much of the rationale for closing these offices goes away with the passage of this bill.

Madam President, I would love to have a voice vote on this, if that is possible.
