Congressional recess provides advocacy opportunities
Both the House of Representatives and the Senate have adjourned for the July 4 holiday recess. They will spend the week in their districts and states participating in meetings and local events. The July 4 holiday is one of the best opportunities to interact with members of Congress in more informal settings while representing NARFE.
Members of Congress will participate in parades and community fairs, especially in an election year. Don't miss the opportunity to tell your representatives to oppose the effort to change postal delivery from six days to five days. And remind your senators to oppose S. 1486, the Senate Postal Reform bill, as it makes substantive changes to long-standing benefits for postal and federal employees and retirees alike. Just a few minutes at community events will make a lasting impression on your legislators and reinforce the message that these issues are important to their constituents.
