Congresswoman re-introduces resolution to “protect door delivery of mail”

Monday, January 9th, 2017

California Congresswoman Susan Davis has re-introduced her bipartisan resolution which aims to “protect” door delivery by the US Postal Service (USPS).

In a statement issued on Friday (6 January), Congresswoman Davis said: “Ending door delivery of mail is not good for postal customers, businesses, or the Postal Service.

“I’ve heard from constituents who are forced to use cluster mailboxes and they report all kinds of problems with them.  My constituents with door delivery are very vocal about wanting to keep this critical service.”

Davis added: “Eliminating door delivery would drive mail and revenue from the Postal Service, devaluing postal mail in the long run as individuals and businesses advertisers would likely send less mail.”

The resolution – H.Res.28 - is cosponsored by the New York Congressman Peter King and Ohio’s Dave Joyce.

Davis’s resolution is the same as the one she introduced in the 114th Congress, which had 228 bipartisan cosponsors.

Switching from door deliveries to cluster mailboxes has, of course, been a major source of controversy north of the border, where Canada Post has put its mailbox migration programme on hold while a government taskforce is reviewing the policy.
