Please support H. R. 1262

Messages Sent So Far
Congressman Gerry Connolly (D-VA) has taken the next step to ensure the USPS a profitable future by introducing H.R. 1262, the Reform the Postal Service for the 21st Century Act. Connolly?s bill has the insight to move the Postal Service forward by allowing it to modernize its business model and expand volume and revenue. H.R. 1262 takes the focus away from cutting services in order to deal with congressionally mandated payments to the PSRHBF and instead focuses on how to better utilize the Postal Service?s networks

Some of the bill?s highlights allow the USPS to:

? Increase revenue by selling non-postal products in retail locations.

? Co-locate postal facilities in other non-postal retail facilities to increase convenience to customers, provided that all employees would remain USPS employees.

? Pursue new marketing strategies to attract new business and increase mail volumes by expanding voting by mail throughout the country, creating packages of products and services to market towards small businesses, and by offering discounts on packages for small businesses as well.

? Replace its vehicle fleet with Electronic Motor Vehicles (EMV) by creating a separate borrowing authority for EMVs specifically, so that EMVs would not count against its current statutory debt limit.

Please support H.R. 1262 as a comprehensive approach to modernizing the Postal Service.

It is a sad day when the Postal Service wants to add to the unemployment problem. I am asking that you support a bill that will allow the Post Offices to perform and sale other services to increase their revenue. Putting thousands out of work to draw unemployment is not the answer.
