Moran Pushes for Improved Mail Service Protections

Effort Includes More Than 50 Members of the U.S. House of Representatives, as well as Nearly 30 U.S. Senators

MANHATTAN, Kan. – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) led a bipartisan, bicameral group of more than 80 legislators this week in calling for lasting solutions at the United States Postal Service. As Congress considers comprehensive U.S. Postal Service reform legislation, the bipartisan coalition seeks provisions to improve and protect mail delivery and service.

In letters to House and Senate leadership, Sen. Moran, U.S. Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.) and their colleagues pressed for better, more reliable mail service, which is often a critical lifeline for families and businesses across the country.

“The Postal Service and its employees play a vital role in our nation,” Sen. Moran and his colleagues wrote. “It is essential that we preserve the Postal Service’s commitment to the American public. For this reason, improving service needs to be a critical piece of any comprehensive postal reform bill, along with the needed reforms to return the Postal Service to fiscal sustainability. Continued poor mail service hurts rural America, businesses, and our economy. Congress should take action to preserve and protect the vibrant institution that is our Postal Service so it, in turn, can help our communities and families truly thrive.”

Sen. Moran is the leading Senate Republican on the Senate postal reform legislation (S. 2051).
