THE SOLUTION – H.R. 2382 & S.2965
Recognizing the problem prefunding creates, the US House of Representatives recently passed the USPS Fairness Act, H.R. 2382 with a sweeping bi-partisan vote of 309-106. The Senate, led by Senators Steve Daines (R-MT) and Brian Schatz (D-HI) introduced identical legislation, S. 2965 on December 3, 2019. Both bills fully repeal the prefunding mandate and revert back to a pay-as you-go system that the postal Service used prior to PAEA.
By repealing the prefunding mandate, the Postal Service would then be able to focus on investing and innovating new services in order to better meet its mission to service every American household and business.
