Senator Chuck Grassley issued the comment below about his vote for the 21st Century Postal Service Act, S.1789.
“This legislation isn’t perfect, but it takes steps to correct Postal Service problems that could result in mail delivery coming to a halt entirely, if not addressed. Unless we help the Postal Service cut costs, the borrowing authority of the Postal Service will run out in the fall, and it will be unable to make payroll. By acting now, and with this legislation, it’s likely that fewer post offices will have to be closed and there will be more accountability regarding which offices are closed. I voted for the bill, even if imperfect, to address a looming crisis now and avoid either a disruption in mail service or a taxpayer bailout, both of which would hurt the economy and take money out of the pockets of hard-working Americans.”
