Today, Representative Josh Harder voted to pass the Postal Service Reform Act of 2022. The bill will ensure the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) delivers at least six days per week, creates a public-facing, online dashboard to track mail delivery, expand special rates for local newspapers, and introduce cost saving measures that are projected to save close to a collective $50 billion in taxpayer dollars over the next 10 years among its many provisions.

"The U.S. Postal Service is a lifeline for so many folks in our community, and we need to make sure it runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible," said Rep. Harder. "Seniors, veterans, military families and more all rely on the USPS to make sure everything from prescription drugs to benefit checks to letters from loved ones arrive on time. I was proud to vote to pass the Postal Service Reform Act to make sure everyone gets what they need when they need it and save nearly $50 billion in taxpayer dollars in the meantime."
