DEMOCRATS CRITICIZE POST OFFICE PLAN: Democratic lawmakers on Wednesday argued a Trump administration proposal to privatize the post office will do little to cut costs, POLITICO’s Andrew Hanna reports.

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp(D-N.D.) said during a Senate HSGAC hearing that privatizing the Postal Service “does nothing to get us to solvency.”

A task force headed by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin tasked with finding ways to reform the post office will release its recommendations by August 10. More here.
