Peterson asks House leadership to consider rural-friendly USPS reforms

Apr 4, 2012


(WASHINGTON DC) – U.S. Rep. Collin Peterson recently signed on to a letter to Speaker Boehner and Leader Pelosi asking that any postal reform legislation consider the impacts of eliminating rural post offices.

"We understand the devastating impact that a post office closure can have on a small community," Peterson said. "It doesn't make a lot of sense to shut down rural post offices without first considering a new business model that incorporates many other reforms."

Peterson, along with 103 other House members signed the letter, which can be accessed below or by contacting 202-225-2165.
