A bipartisan group of senators has introduced legislation to limit excessive postal rate increases for periodicals while improving service.

The Deliver for Democracy Act would force the U.S. Postal Service to meet “reasonable on-time delivery standards before raising rates,” says co-sponsor, Senator Peter Welch (D-VT), who is leading the effort along with Senator Mike Rounds (R-S.D.)

The bill is also supported by Senators Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.), Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), John Hoeven (R-N.D.), Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), and Tina Smith (D-Minn.).
