Resolutions Opposing Privatization of the Postal Service Introduced in Congress

10/02/2018 -

On July 16, a leading group of Congressional representatives took action to help combat a proposal to privatize the Postal Service by introducing House Resolution 993. The privatization proposal, put forward by the White House’s Office of Management and Budget in their report Delivering Government Solutions in the 21st Century, would “restructure the U.S. Postal Service” and “prepare it for future conversion from a government agency into a privately-held corporation.”   

Thereafter, on Sept. 18, a bipartisan group of Senators introduced Senate Resolution 633, sponsored by Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO), stating that, “Congress should take all appropriate measures to ensure that the United States Postal Service remains an independent establishment of the Federal Government and is not subject to privatization.” By Sept. 25, S.Res.633 had 36 co-sponsors including, Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Sen. Angus King, Jr. (I-ME), and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ).
