Senators introduce postal reform bill with bipartisan support
from Government Executive
Two oversight leaders in the Senate have introduced bipartisan legislation to overhaul the U.S. Postal Service, striking middle ground between partisan proposals put forward in the House. The 2013 Postal Reform Act was introduced by Sen. Tom Carper, D-Del., chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, and co-sponsored by Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., the committee's ranking member. Coburn voted against Carper's bill in the last Congress — the legislation ultimately cleared the Senate but died in the House — and his support this time around dramatically increases the likelihood the upper chamber will once again approve a reform measure.
