Senate Democrats Want To Put A Hold On DeJoy’s Mail Plans
A group of Democratic Senators plan to introduce a bill that would block Postmaster General Louis DeJoy’s 10-year plan for the United States Postal Service (USPS).
Sens. Martin Heinrich (N.M.), Richard Blumenthal (Ct.), and Joe Manchin (W.V.) will introduce the bill to block DeJoy’s plan when the Senate comes back into session on Monday. In March DeJoy revealed details of a plan that he claims will turn around the Postal Service’s wrecked financials. The Donald Trump-appointee’s initiative would result in the largest rollback of consumer mail services in a generation, lengthen the delivery window for first-class mail, cut post office hours and raise postage prices.
