Washington — Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer vowed to move quickly to pass a sprawling bill to reform the struggling U.S. Postal Service, after the legislation won approval by a wide bipartisan margin in the House on Tuesday.

“It is my intention for the Senate to quickly take up and pass this bipartisan, bicameral postal reform bill,” Schumer said on the Senate floor Wednesday. “We hope to take action here on the floor and pass the bill before we go to Presidents’ Day recess.”

The legislation would lift onerous budget requirements that have helped push the Postal Service deeply into debt and would require it to continue delivering mail six days per week.
