Package Coalition Statement on Introduction of Senate Postal Reform Act

Washington, D.C. - The following is a statement from Package Coalition Chairman, Secretary John McHugh, in response to the bipartisan introduction of the Senate Postal Service Reform Act of 2021.

“The Package Coalition praises Senator Gary Peters and Senator Rob Portman, along with their Senate co-sponsors, for doing the difficult and commendable bipartisan work to introduce the Postal Service Reform Act of 2021. This bill is critical to ensuring that USPS continues to serve in its indispensable role in America’s economic infrastructure, delivering for Americans and small businesses at competitive prices with reliable service. Importantly, the legislation will preserve the service’s integrated delivery network, which delivers mail and packages six days a week. It is clear that Congress is committed to passing the first major postal reform legislation in 15 years, and we look forward to seeing that happen.

“U.S. Senators Richard Burr (R-NC), Tom Carper (D-DE), Thom Tillis (R-NC), Maggie Hassan (D-NH), Shelley Capito (R-WV), Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), Steve Daines (R-MT), Jacky Rosen (D-NV), Susan Collins (R-ME), Alex Padilla (D-CA), Dan Sullivan (R-AK), Ron Wyden (D-OR), Josh Hawley (R-MO), Brian Schatz (D-HI), Mike Rounds (R-SD), Roy Blunt (D-MO), Joe Manchin (D-WV), and Tina Smith (D-MN) deserve a great deal of gratitude for recognizing the need for this reform and working out an exceptional legislative package in a timely and bipartisan fashion.”
