NALC and APWU Statements Regarding Postal Reform Bill – Postal Employee Network

without comments

On Jan. 31, House Oversight and Government Reform (OGR) Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) reintroduced the Postal Service Reform Act of 2017 (H.R. 756), and Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-MA), a member of the OGR Committee, reintroduced the Postal Service Financial Improvement Act (H.R. 760). The OGR Committee has jurisdiction over the U.S. Postal Service.

 NALC President Fredric Rolando has been invited to testify during a Feb. 7 OGR Committee hearing on both bills. Last May, Rolando testified before the committee about the need for comprehensive postal reform legislation.

The two new bills are similar to postal measures that were introduced in the House of Representatives in the 114th Congress. Following a mark-up session shortly after last May’s hearing, both of those bills were overwhelmingly approved by the committee.
