Carper urges Senate to confirm USPS board nominees

US Senator Tom Carper yesterday (25 April) welcomed the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee’s approval of Jeffrey Rosen’s nomination as a US Postal Service governor, but said it was “shameful” that there are still five nominees pending. In a statement published on the Senate website, Senator Carper said: “There are now six Postal Board of Governors nominees pending before the full Senate, five of which have been pending for more than a year. Some of them have even been waiting for confirmation since the last Congress. As a result, the Postal Service is currently down to one sitting Senate-confirmed Governor overseeing Postal Service operations.

“This is shameful.

“The Postal Service operates at the center of a $1.4 trillion printing, delivery and logistics industry that employs nearly 8 million people.

“At a time when the agency is in grave need of independent oversight and direction, I urge my Senate colleagues to confirm these nominees without further delay.”
