Today, Representative Jared Huffman (D-San Rafael) joined Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney, the Chairwoman of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, Rep. Peter King, and over 80 Members of Congress in sending a letter to Postmaster General Louis DeJoy expressing deep concerns about operational changes at the U.S. Postal Service that could have negative impacts on service standards and cause significant delays in mail delivery.

“It is vital that the U.S. Postal Service not reduce mail delivery times, which could harm rural communities, seniors, small businesses, and millions of Americans who rely on the mail for critical letters and packages,” wrote the Members. “Eliminating overtime and directing postal workers to leave mail on the floor of postal facilities will erode confidence in the Postal Service and drive customers away, resulting in even worse financial conditions in the future.”

Recently, troubling reports have surfaced indicating that under the new Postmaster General, operations are being changed to cut costs — disregarding the critical and constitutionally mandated nature of the Postal Service’s mission:

“We stand ready to work with you on improving the financial condition of the Postal Service, in a way that guarantees the American people’s continued access to critical postal services in a timely manner,” added the Members.
