Legislation agreed to last night by the US Senate apparently contains no financial relief for the US Postal Service, according to Rep. Gerald E. Connolly (D-Va.), chairman of the government operations subcommittee that oversees the Postal Service.
From the Washington Post:
Connolly blamed Senate Republicans and the White House. McConnell’s office did not reply to a request for comment.
While airlines and other businesses are included in the legislation, “Somehow the Postal Service is not worthy of any financial assistance in the midst of this crisis,” Connolly said.
“It’s to me an outrageous situation. We could have completely returned the Postal Service to solvency and got it started back on its feet and guaranteed continued uninterrupted service to the American people during this crisis and beyond. We’ve decided we’re going to help well-healed industries that have connections, and we’re going to let the Postal Service hang in the wind.”In a message to his members, American Postal Workers Union President Mark Dimondstein urged Congress “to act immediately to ensure the financial viability of the Postal Service. We were deeply disappointed that stimulus legislation nearing passage Wednesday does not include vital relief for the Postal Service.”
