House Lawmakers Reintroduce Resolution to Preserve Door Delivery Service

House Resolution 109 (H. Res. 109), which calls on Congress to “take all appropriate measures to ensure the continuation of door delivery for all businesses and residential customers,” has been reintroduced in the 117th Congress.

The bipartisan resolution is identical to previous versions of the resolution and is led by Reps. Stephanie Murphy (D-FL) and David Joyce (R-OH), who took over leadership of the resolution following the retirement of Reps. Susan Davis (D-CA) and Peter King (R-NY) last Congress.

In each Congress, the measure has consistently received overwhelming bipartisan support, demonstrating the importance of retaining door service for communities who currently have it.

As letter carriers know, reductions in service have previously been considered as a substitute for addressing underlying financial issues. NALC opposes misguided service reductions and encourages House Representatives to cosponsor this important resolution.
