Following a rise in stolen checks from neighborhood post offices and mailboxes, U.S. Reps. Grace Meng (D-Queens) and Nicole Malliotakis (R-Staten Island/Brooklyn) announced on April 6 that they have introduced bipartisan legislation to enhance the U.S. Postal Service’s (USPS) ability to crack down on postal crime.

The USPS Subpoena Authority Act would strengthen the agency’s ability to crack down on criminal organizations driving mail theft through administrative subpoenas. With these subpoenas, USPS could collect more information related to the financial fraud associated with mail theft, including bank records and surveillance videos, to build mail theft cases against criminal organizations that meet prosecutorial thresholds.
