Gonzalez calls for reforms alongside funding following “no” vote on House USPS bill
Washington, August 22, 2020
U.S. Congressman Anthony Gonzalez (R-Rocky River) today released the following statement following his “no” vote on H.R. 8015, a bill to appropriate additional emergency funding for the United States Postal Service without accountability for financial stability or needed reforms:
"Over the past several weeks, the U.S. Post Office has made commitments that make it clear our postal system has what it needs to serve America’s voters in the coming election with enough funding on hand to last through half of next year. While it is vital that we provide additional funding to ensure continued operations beyond that point, doing so without also addressing USPS’ significant business model problems and financial instability is irresponsible and ineffective. We must partner long overdue reforms alongside funding to ensure a successful postal service for the millions of Americans relying on it every day."
