APWU Calls Vote 'Significant Development'
The Senate approved a motion on S. Con. Res. 11 introduced by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) that instructs budget conferees to insist on a deficit-neutral fund to halt mail processing center closures, restore overnight mail delivery, and protect rural services. A deficit-neutral amendment may not increase the nation’s deficit.
The non-binding instructions were approved 85-11 in a resounding bipartisan vote on April 15.
