Rep. Elijah Cummings,(D-MD) who was Chairman of the House Committee on Government Oversight passed away suddenly today. He was influential in addressing solutions and legislation which would help the Postal get back on a sound financial footing. His committee was putting the finishing touches on a Postal Reform Bill that would help the UPS immensely. He was a great friend of the Postal Service and will be dearly missed.
Our sincere condolences go out to his friends and family.

ANTI PRIVATIZATION RESOLUTION S Res 633 9/20/2018
Posted by Bob Levi, www.unitedpma.org
On Tuesday evening, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) introduced S.Res. 633, a Senate resolution to ensure that the U.S. Postal Service remains a governmental service and is not subject to privatization. As introduced, the resolution earned the bipartisan cosponsorship of 27 Senators.
S.Res 633 is the Senate companion to H.Res. 933, which presently has 190 cosponsors. Both measures point out that postal privatization, as being proposed by the White House, would result in higher postage rates, reduce service to rural communities, jeopardize e-commerce, and cripple a part of America's infrastructure.
UPMA members should call their Senators and Representative to cosponsors either H.Res 993 or S. Res. 633, if they have already not done so. (Use the provided links above to determine if your Representative or Senator is a cosponsor.) The number of the U.S. Capitol Switchboard is 202-224-3121
