WASHINGTON, DC – Today, as constituents across MN-02 continue to experience slow mail service, U.S. Representative Angie Craig introduced legislation to require the United States Postal Service (USPS) to increase public-facing service level reporting.
Rep. Craig’s bill would require USPS to notify customers of undelivered and partially delivered routes by zip code, keeping Minnesotans informed of when they can expect their mail to be delivered or delayed.
As Minnesotans continue to experience slow delivery, additional public reporting would help increase transparency and accountability for sub-par service from USPS.
“For months, my constituents have been left wondering when their mail – their prescription medications, notes from loved ones, small business checks – will be delivered. This bill will help Minnesotans get timely and accurate information when it comes to their mail delivery, and will help hold USPS accountable for poor delivery service. I’ll keep working to improve postal service here in the South Metro,” said Rep. Craig.

This bill is part of Rep. Craig’s push to improve mail delivery in the South Metro.
Most recently, she renewed her call to USPS Postmaster General Louis DeJoy to consider opening a joint Lakeville/Farmington Post Office to help improve mail service in two of Minnesota’s fastest growing cities.
