House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today on the U.S. Postal Service's announcement that it intends to end Saturday mail delivery:
"The Postal Service's announcement that it will end Saturday delivery of mail underscores the need for the House to get serious about comprehensive reform that puts the U.S. Postal Service on a long-term, fiscally sustainable path. If we want to prevent the Postal Service from taking further action that will affect the American people and our businesses, Congress must act now. Last year, the Senate passed bipartisan reform legislation that House Republican leaders refused to schedule for consideration. It's time for Democrats and Republicans to work together to ensure Americans continue to receive their mail and packages on-time."
