Just a quick update to let you know about Tom’s work this past week, including his work to protect the US Postal Service.
Last week, Tom traveled to Washington D.C. to vote in favor of the Delivering for America Act, a crucial piece of legislation that Tom co-sponsored to prohibit the Postal Service from making changes that would impede prompt and reliable service nationwide.
Specifically, the bill provides an additional $25 billion in funding for the US Postal Service and would also prevent:
- Any revisions that compromise current service standards,
- Closing, consolidating or reducing hours at any post office,
- Prohibitions on paying overtime to postal employees; and,
- Any change that would have the effect of delaying mail or increasing the volume of undelivered mail.
