IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

January 27, 2015

Mr. McKinley (for himself, Mr. Tonko, Mr. Young of Alaska, Ms. Kaptur, Mr. LaMalfa, Mr. Nolan, Mr. Joyce, and Ms. Linda T. Sánchez of California) submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform


RESOLUTION

Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that the United States Postal Service should take all appropriate measures to restore service standards in effect as of July 1, 2012.

    Whereas on January 5, 2015, the United States Postal Service has implemented lower “service standards” to virtually eliminate overnight delivery of first class mail and periodicals, and further delay most other mail;

    Whereas delayed mail negatively impacts businesses, hurts residents, rural communities and the economy, and drives customers away, resulting in lower revenue and worsens the Postal Service’s financial situation; and

    Whereas robust service standards implemented by the United States Postal Service are essential to providing prompt and timely delivery of all mail: online purchases, local newspapers, newsletters, bill payments, letters, invitations, packages, and medicines: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that the United States Postal Service should take all appropriate measures to restore service standards in effect as of July 1, 2012.
