Congressman Gerry Connolly (D-VA), Chairman of the House Government Operations subcommittee, released the following statement on USPS provisions included in the Heroes Act.
The Heroes Act includes $25 billion to save the United States Postal Service and ends Treasury’s blockade of the $10 billion loan authorized in the CARES Act. An additional $25 billion for capital investment is set to be included in upcoming infrastructure legislation.
“This will keep the Postal Service afloat. But let me be absolutely clear: If President Trump and the Senate GOP demand anything less than the Heroes Act provides, the Postal Service will continue to sink.”
