House panel approves postal reform bill

U.S. Capitol
A U.S. House of Representatives committee approved a postal reform bill March 16.

The U.S. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has approved the postal reform bill introduced last month.

In a statement, PMG Megan J. Brennan thanked the committee members who introduced, co-sponsored and passed the legislation.

“This bipartisan bill is the product of reasonable and fiscally responsible compromise and represents a significant step toward returning the Postal Service to a position of financial stability that all stakeholders agree is necessary,” the PMG said.

Enactment of the legislation, along with a favorable resolution of the Postal Regulatory Commission’s 10-year pricing system review and continued aggressive management actions to control costs and grow revenue, will “enable the Postal Service to meet its financial obligations and continue to provide affordable, reliable and secure delivery service to every business and home in America. We look forward to continuing to work with the House and Senate and our stakeholders to get a postal reform bill passed this Congress,” she said.

The PMG’s full statement is available on the USPS Newsroom site. Brennan also discussed the legislation in an op-ed published this week in The Hill, a Capitol Hill newspaper.
