Senator’s bipartisan Postal Service Reform Act improves efficiency, transparency, and financial stability of the U.S. Postal Service
WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema’s bipartisan Postal Service Reform Act is headed to the President’s desk after the U.S. Senate passed it with a 79-19 vote margin.
As Chair of the Senate Government Operations Subcommittee – the subcommittee with oversight of the U.S. Postal Service – Sinema was an original cosponsor, playing a key role getting this bipartisan legislation across the finish line.
“Arizonans all over our state depend on the Postal Service to send letters to loved ones, pay bills, receive paychecks and prescriptions, and so much more. That’s why we’re proud our Postal Service Reform Act passed the Senate with bipartisan support and now heads to the President’s desk, ensuring Arizonans can count on reliable mail delivery,” said Sinema, Chair of the Senate Government Operations Subcommittee.
Sinema’s bipartisan Postal Service Reform Act improves the efficiency, transparency, and financial stability of the Postal Service. The Postal Service is a trusted service that thousands of Arizonans, including veterans, seniors, small business owners, and rural and tribal communities rely on for medication, bills, and other essential needs.
The senator’s bipartisan legislation ensures the Postal Service continues delivering at least six days a week and requires it to publish weekly, local on-time delivery data on its website. This will make the Postal Service more accountable and transparent to Arizonans.
Sinema’s work across the aisle helped this legislation earn broad bipartisan support, and she will continue advancing commonsense proposals – such as her bipartisan infrastructure law and her bipartisan Postal Service Reform Act – that deliver lasting results for everyday Arizonans.
