Lautenberg Statement on Postal Service Announcement on Continuing Six-Day Service

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Sen. Frank R. Lautenberg (D-NJ), Chairman of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government, which has jurisdiction over funding for the U.S. Postal Service, issued the following statement today on the Postal Service's announcement on six-day delivery:

"By continuing six-day service, the U.S. Postal Service is following the letter of the law and protecting the livelihood of thousands of postal workers. We must look beyond piecemeal efforts and focus instead on comprehensive postal reform that will secure the Postal Service's long-term viability, protect middle class jobs, and provide essential delivery services for all Americans."

When the Postal Service announced plans in February to reduce service to five days a week, Lautenberg released a statement expressing concern about the plan and calling for comprehensive reform of the Postal Service.
