The top senator with direct oversight of the U.S. Postal Service is calling on its leadership to pause its overhaul of the agency’s mailing network due to potential impacts they are having on delivery, saying it has pushed forward without transparency.

USPS should not continue its nationwide operational reforms until it can prove the changes will not negatively impact mail service, Sen. Gary Peters, D-Mich., who chairs the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said in a letter to Postmaster General Louis DeJoy. Agency leadership has ignored many of his requests for additional information on its efforts, Peters said, leaving Congress uncertain about the fallout that could befall postal customers.

“I am increasingly concerned about the pace and impacts of these changes, and reiterate my request for fully responsive answers to my questions,” Peters said. “I also call on USPS to pause all network changes until it can clearly demonstrate that such changes will not degrade local mail service. This will be a top oversight priority for this committee.”
