President Biden Signs Maloney’s Postal Service Reform Act into Law

WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney, Chairwoman of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, on April 6 issued the following statements after President Biden signed the historic Postal Service Reform Act into law:

“Today, Congress and the Biden-Harris Administration saved the Postal Service and delivered for the American people,” said Chairwoman Maloney. “This historic law will finally get the Postal Service on sustainable financial footing after decades of decline. I am proud to have negotiated this bill across party lines and to have worked hand-in-hand with Ranking Member Comer, Chairman Peters, and Ranking Member Portman. As Chairwoman of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, I vow to continue using my gavel to conduct rigorous oversight over the Postal Service to ensure it remains financially stable and continues to serve the American people for generations to come.”

The Postal Service’s financial condition has been deteriorating over the past decade due to a number of factors. The provisions included in the Postal Service Reform Act are critical to helping the Postal Service remain financially viable and ensuring it provides the high quality of service Americans expect and deserve. These provisions include Medicare integration, repealing a requirement for the Postal Service to pre-fund retiree health benefits, increased transparency of delivery service, reporting on Postal Service operations and finances, a requirement that the Postal Service deliver mail six days per week, and other matters.

On February 8, 2022, the House of Representatives passed the Postal Service Reform Act in a bipartisan vote of 342-92.

On March 8, 2022, the Senate passed the Postal Service Reform Act in a bipartisan vote of 79-19.
