Issa Confident in Moving Through Postal Reform Legislation

Rep. Darrell Issa is remaining confident the lame duck Congress will approve proposed reform legislation of the U.S. Postal Service, a spokesman told GovExec.

Some of Issa’s plans for the USPS include closing and consolidation of postal facilities, reduced delivery days, creation of an audit group and selling advertising on USPS facilities and vehicles, Eric Katz reports.

Issa’s bill has moved through the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, the panel he chairs, but has not moved to the full chamber for vote yet.

The Senate passed its version of postal reform legislation in April, which would give the agency $11 billion to offer buyouts and early retirements and authority to end offering its Saturday delivery services in two years.

That bill also gives the agency authority to close and consolidate post offices, including co-locating some offices in government-owned buildings.
