McCaskill Seeks Review of Postal Service’s Ability to Meet Delivery Standards

In Association News On

WASHINGTON – In an effort to better understand the ability of the Postal Service to meet stated delivery times, U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill is requesting that the federal government’s top watchdog review the Postal Service’s calculation of delivery times and standards.

“As a former Missouri State Auditor, I know that solving problems has to start with a firm understanding of the facts,” said McCaskill, who was born in Rolla, Mo. and is a senior member of the Senate’s Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. “That’s why I’m asking the Government Accountability Office for this review, because we won’t be able to fix these programs unless we know the full scope of the delay issues—especially in our rural communities.”

The review is expected to be completed by August.

Senators Jon Tester of Montana, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, and Tom Carper of Delaware have also signed on to the request.
