A regulator of the U.S. Postal Service said his watchdog agency must ramp up its efforts in the face of Postmaster General Louis DeJoy’s ambitious plans to remake the mail delivery network, even threatening to “ratchet back” his authority to increase prices.

Robert Taub, a current member of the Postal Regulatory Commission who President Biden has renominated to serve in the same post, told members of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee on Thursday that DeJoy’s Delivering for America plan may represent “the most fundamental change to the network since Ben Franklin was the postmaster general.” DeJoy has maintained a tense relationship with his regulators, calling them an obstacle to progress and repeatedly requesting they not stand in the way of his reforms. Taub, however, said the commission does not plan to cede any of its authority.
