House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Introduced Bi-partisan Postal Reform Legislation

Earlier this week, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee introduced bi-partisan postal reform legislation.  The lead sponsor was Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), but the legislation also is co-sponsored by Ranking Member Elijah Cummings (D-MD), Mark Meadows (R-NC), Stephen Lynch (D-MA). Gerald Connolly (D-VA), and Dennis Ross (R-FL-15).  This legislation (the Postal Reform Act of 2017, H.R. 756) is similar to legislation that was introduced last year in the 114th Congress.  That prior legislation was passed by the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, but never saw action on the full floor and died when Congress adjourned in December.

The NPMHU appreciates the hard work that Chairman Chaffetz, Ranking Member Cummings, and the other co-sponsors have done with respect to this legislation.

The NPMHU will review and analyze this bi-partisan legislation.  President Hogrogian is optimistic that, if this bill is passed by the new Congress and signed into law by President Trump, the Postal Service’s financial future will be more secure.

The NPMHU will report further information as it becomes available.
