Sign the Petition to Get Your Voice Heard on Postal Reform

Delivering for AmericaCutting Saturday mail is not the way to reform the United States Postal Service. The real culprit of USPS losses is pre-funding, which is responsible for 78 percent of the USPS’s $42.5 billion in losses since 2007. To save the USPS from such financially crippling policies, Congressman DeFazio of Oregon has launched a “We The People” petition that demands a more responsible reform strategy. The petition asks Congress to support H.R. 630, legislation that preserves Saturday mail, ends a 2006 ban prohibiting the USPS from offering new products and services and re-establishes overnight delivery standards to ensure timely delivery of mail and prevent the closure of mail plants. Senator Sanders of Vermont has filed a companion bill, S. 316, in the Senate.

If we reach 100,000 signatures on the petition by May 24th, administration policy experts will take notice and consider the proposal. We’re still more than 80,000 signatures away from our goal, so we need your help!

Add your name to show your support for policies that strengthen – not weaken – the USPS: Petition.

Sincerely,

Meaghan Slater
Delivering for America
