Six-Day Mail House Resolution Introduced

Reps. Sam Graves (R-MO) and Gerry Connolly (D-VA) have reintroduced their resolution to preserve six-day mail delivery with House Resolution 114 (H. Res. 114). 

The resolution is identical to previous versions that have been introduced at the beginning of every Congress since 2009 calling on Congress to “take all appropriate measures to ensure the continuation of its 6-day mail delivery service.”

The resolution has continued to surpass a bipartisan majority of support in the House, demonstrating the overwhelming support for maintaining six-day delivery. Over the years, lawmakers have pushed back against attempts to reduce six-day delivery, citing the importance of the network delivering seven days a week. In fact, each year, congressional appropriators include language protecting six-day mail delivery in its annual appropriations bills, signaling the tremendous support for maintaining the service.
