Protect Our Postal Service
Urge Your U.S. Representative to Co-Sponsor H.R. 2382, the USPS Fairness Act

Since 2006, USPS has been battered by an unfair congressional mandate, costing it billions every year and threatening the service we need. Finally, there’s a commonsense solution to fix it.

Legislative Update- S. 2965
USPS Fairness Act Introduced
Senators Steve Daines (R-MT) and Brian Schatz (D-HI) have introduced S. 2965, the USPS Fairness Act, on December 4, 2019. The bill is the Senate version of House Bill H.R. 2382, which was introduced by Congressman Peter DeFazio (D-0R) earlier this year, on April 29, 2019. Together these bills would repeal the requirement that the U.S. Postal Service prepay for future retirement benefits through continuing contributions to the Retiree Health Benefits Fund.
The House version has bi-partisan support with over 290 cosponsors, which now means, by House rules, it can be voted upon by the entire House.
President Hogrogian emphasized that this is the first step towards righting the USPS financial ship, but surely not be the last. “We still need comprehensive Postal Reform, but meanwhile we will to continue to work with our partners to see this most needed reform is passed through the House and Senate and signed into law.”
President Hogrogian wants all members to contact their Senators to ask them to support S. 2965. Also, members should thank their representatives in the House who have signed onto H.R. 2382 or ask them to support the bill if they have not already done so.
