WASHINGTON, D.C.–A U.S. congressman has introduced a bill which would allow the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) to mail alcoholic beverages to residents over the age of 21.

H.R. 3721, otherwise known as the ‘‘United States Postal Service Shipping Equity Act’’ is sponsored by U.S. Representative Dan Newhouse (R-WA-4). The bill, which has bipartisan support, would amend prohibition-era rules which currently don’t allow USPS to mail alcoholic beverages to residents despite other couriers allowed to do so under law.

The bill would allow for USPS to get into the spirit mailing business as long as the recipient of the beverage is 21 or older and presents a valid government issue ID at the time of delivery.
