Members of the U.S. House are returning early to Washington this week to work on legislation that would shore up funding for the U.S. Postal Service to avert delivery and service cutbacks ahead of November’s elections.
House Democrats plan to call for $25 billion in funding to be voted on the Saturday after the DNC, to help process a surge of mail-in ballots from voters wanting to avoid Election Day polling places during the pandemic.
Last week, Trump blocked a $25-billion bailout for the postal service, as well as a Democratic plan to give $3.6 billion in election aid to states, amid a stalemate between Republicans and Democrats on broader virus relief.
On Monday, Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, a Trump appointee and GOP megadonor, agreed to testify Aug. 24 to Congress following outcry over the agency’s removal of official USPS mailboxes and mail sorting machines, and the reduction in hours for workers across the country.
Separately, a group of voters and political candidates sued Trump and DeJoy, claiming they’ve “set out to ensure USPS cannot reliably deliver election mail.” State attorneys general are likely to file similar claims, and lawmakers are calling for a federal criminal investigation of DeJoy.
On Monday, Trump said USPS was “running very well” and that he urged the agency to “speed up, not slow the mail,” before adding, one reason the agency is “losing so much money is on delivering packages for Amazon.”
