Door delivery resolution gains House majority—don’t let up!

This week, House Resolution 28, a bill supporting the preservation of door delivery service, reached a milestone: a bipartisan majority of representatives in the House have added their names as a co-sponsor of the legislation. Throughout the past month, letter carriers across the country have been calling their representatives and urging them to support this important resolution.

Thanks largely to those efforts, and with a majority now signed on to the measure, it should be much harder for Congress to take up postal reform legislation in the lame-duck that includes language threatening to cut door delivery for nearly 5.5 million businesses.

“We won’t stop urging members of Congress to support door delivery until every representative understands the importance of this crucial service,” NALC President Fredric Rolando said. “We must build on the momentum that’s been created and continue asking our representatives to stand with us.”
