TAMPA, FL – U.S. Representative Kathy Castor (FL-14) urged Postmaster General Louis DeJoy and local Postmasters to address the lack of air conditioning in mail delivery trucks by swiftly updating the mail delivery fleet with modern electric vehicles while making desperately needed fixes to its current fleet to ensure the health and safety of Letter Carriers as climate pollution exacerbates extreme, record-breaking heatwaves. The Inflation Reduction Act, passed one year ago, is funding the modernization of the mail delivery fleet and Castor is pressing for prioritization to the Tampa Bay region.

Castor’s letter follows numerous reports of failing delivery vehicles with broken air conditioning as the Tampa Bay region experiences its hottest summer on record.
