Postal Legislation & The Next Congress: A Virtual Discussion
Date: Wednesday, November 18
Time: 3:00 p.m.
Location: Virtual via Zoom
This presentation/discussion will focus on how things may shape up for postal legislation with the next Administration & the 117th Congress. Through this work, there’s legislation for postal reform & revision on two levels. One is direct appropriations for the postal service to make it whole due to COVID-19 losses, and the other is a revival of interest in postal reform legislation which has languished for about a year in the current Congress.
To put it clearly, the future of the USPS is at stake. In order to truly stabilize it and set it up for the future, the notion of reform has to be addressed. There are substantial differences between the House and the Senate and how to approach the legislation, so it’s gonna be essential, but it’s not going to be easy.
We invite you to join us for this discussion about the process & how to get involved with your representatives.
