On Feburary 8, 2022, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 3076, the Postal Service Reform Act of 2022, with an overwhelming 342 to 92 majority. NAPS was honored to have worked with the bipartisan authors of the measure, Reps. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and James Comer (R-KY), to help secure its passage.
NAPS President Ivan Butts, Executive Vice President Chuck Mulidore and Secretary/Treasurer Jimmy Warden, sent a letter of support to Congress late last week. In part, they wrote, "If enacted, this legislation would represent a positive and meaningful step forward to help stabilize postal finances and restore operational effectiveness. Postal stabilization and restoration are vital goals because the agency has once again confirmed its pivotal role as a vital component of the nation’s essential infrastructure." NAPS resident officers continued, "H.R. 3076 addresses two key NAPS priorities: repeal of the punitive and burdensome requirement that the Postal Service prefund its retirees’ health liabilities and reduce health liabilities without adversely impacting the earned benefits of postal employees. These provisions provide the agency with much-needed financial breathing space. NAPS commends those who crafted and perfected the measure for “threading the needle.”
NAPS will now work to secure passage in the Senate.
