State Officials Questioning Postal Delays

Many of us have experienced postal delays, and they seem to be happening at an ever increasing pace these days. Now, U.S. Representative Rob Wittman has joined a bipartisan group of Virginia lawmakers who are pressuring the U.S. Postal Service to offer an explanation for the mail delivery delays and disruptions that are impacting Virginians. The lawmakers have requested a briefing with postal officials and a tour of some facilities to better understand the causes of what they say are unacceptable delays, and then to discuss what is being done to prevent further delays from continuing. The lawmakers say they are unsatisfied with the level of urgency and responsiveness the US Postal Service has demonstrated with the issues they have raised, and in fact, the postal service has recently declined requests for meetings and tours to discuss the issues.
