Washington, D.C. — Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) released the following statement after the House voted overwhelmingly to pass the Postal Service Reform Act:
"With an overwhelmingly bipartisan vote in the House, it is my intention for the Senate to take up and pass this bipartisan, bicameral postal reform bill before the end of this work period.
"This postal reform legislation has been over a decade in the making. These reforms will help to improve service for veterans, small businesses, rural communities, seniors, and millions of Americans who rely on the Postal Service for medicines, essential goods, voting, correspondence, and for their livelihoods. I want to thank Senators Peters and Portman, along with their House colleagues, for their tireless work that has helped secure today’s overwhelming vote in the House and moved needed postal reform one step closer to becoming law."
