01/28/2015 - Just weeks into the 114th Congress, a new bipartisan coalition of eight U.S. representatives is taking a stand for prompt, reliable mail service.
On Jan. 27, Rep. Dave McKinley (R-WV) and Rep. Paul Tonko (D-NY) introduced House Resolution 54, which expresses the sense of the House of Representatives that the Postal Service should take all appropriate measures to restore the service standards that were in effect as of July 1, 2012.
