5 ways the postmaster general's new USPS plan could impact your mail delivery

"Us postal service has a plan to save money. But it could mean slowing down some mail and likely raising some prices postmaster general. Louis dejoy announced a new proposal this week. If it gets approved it would take up to five days to get standard first class. Mail delivered right now. The standard is three days or less the plan would also shift more deliveries to trucks. instead of planes. It would cut hours at some post offices and it might raise the price of postage. Although it's not clear by how much keep in mind. The proposal comes at a pretty desperate time for the post office. It's been struggling financially for years and could now lose one hundred and sixty billion dollars over the next decade but not everyone thinks this new proposal is the right way to make up for those losses. House speaker nancy pelosi said it would undermine the very mission of the usps other lawmakers worried. This could dramatically slow the delivery of critical things like prescription drugs and social security checks. Whoever the postmaster general says at least sixty one percent of mail will be delivered in less than three days anyway and no matter what the usps needs to either make changes or get a big government bailout either way. Nothing is set in stone yet. The postal service still wants to get the opinion of the independent postal regulatory commission before making any real

The ballots had been scanned into the system, but there was no record that they had been scanned out. But the Postal Service said in a statement that there was a simple explanation that under the extraordinary measures it was taking Teo get Election mail delivered on time, postal workers removed the ballots from the system before they received a final scan and delivered them directly to election boards. Mark demonstration, president of the American Postal Workers Union says that's exactly what happened. They're not missing. They're not disappeared.

The Postal Service suspended those changes, spurred by a series of lawsuits from state officials and advocacy groups. Demonstration says Despite the controversies, he believes the Postal Service did a good job under a lot of pressure, very proud of it. Obviously all the vote should be counted, but this was a really success. For the American people. Still, there were some glitches in testimony today before U. S District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan.
