Service standards resolution reintroduced in the House

Reps. David McKinley (R-WV), Paul Tonko (D-NY), Don Young (R-AK) Marcy Kaptur (D-OH), Doug LaMalfa (R-CA), Richard Nolan (D-MN) , David Joyce (R-OH) and Linda Sanchez (D-CA) have reintroduced their resolution to maintain service standards, H.Res. 31.

The resolution’s text is identical to the version that was introduced at the beginning of the last Congress in 2015: “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.”

By the end of the 114th Congress (2015-2016), this resolution had garnered majority bipartisan support, with 236 co-sponsors.
