I wanted to give you a personal heads up that tomorrow, the US House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform will be voting on HR 2309, the Postal Reform Act of 2011.  This is the bill written by California Rep. Darryl Issa that would permit the US Postal Service to begin the process of shutting down hundreds of post offices across Iowa and the country.

As you know, the Postal Service has released a long list of small town post offices in Iowa that face the possibility of closure.  You can view that list at the following link: http://about.usps.com/news/electronic-press-kits/expandedaccess/states/iowa.htm

Rep. Bruce Braley is a member of the Oversight and Government Reform committee, and has actively opposed the closure of post offices in Iowa.  He will be attending the hearing tomorrow, and we will be releasing additional information on his efforts tomorrow as well.  However, I wanted to make sure you had details on this hearing, as it impacts post offices in almost every county in Iowa:
