WASHINGTON — A House Resolution urging the United States Postal Service to ensure the continuation of door delivery for all business and residential customers has received bipartisan support from a total of 118 cosponsors.
The resolution, authored by Rep. Stephanie Murphy, D-Fla., was written in response to past efforts to cut door delivery service in some neighborhoods by creating cluster boxes that would serve multiple addresses. Research data indicates that more than 36 million USPS customers receive mail directly to their door, and over 99% of customers prefer door delivery to cluster boxes.
“In communities around the country, door delivery has become a staple of American life. During this pandemic, many families have come to rely on the U.S. Postal Service for grocery and medication delivery, and voting information,” Murphy said in a written statement. “We should be making it easier for Americans — especially seniors and the disabled — to receive these critical items directly, rather than creating barriers that will prevent them from accessing them.”
