On July 16, a bipartisan House Resolution, H. Res. 993, was introduced “expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that Congress should take all appropriate measures to ensure that the United States Postal Service remains an independent establishment of the Federal Government and is not subject to privatization.”
Ten members of the House, five Republicans and five Democrats, sponsored the resolution. The resolution, lead by Rep. Rodney Davis (R-IL) and Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-MA), were joined by Reps. Don Young (R-AK), Paul Cook (R-CA), Brian Mast (R-FL), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), Stephanie Murphy (D-FL), Marcia Fudge (D-OH), Cedric Richmond (D-LA), and Dave Loebsack (D-IA).
The NRLCA endorses H. Res. 993 and urges all members to contact their Representatives and ask them to become co-sponsors. Text of H. Res. 993 will be made available shortly
