Members of Congress need to come together and enact legislation that would not only enable the Postal Service to be financially sustainable, but would also ensure they can continue to serve customers and support jobs across the country. There are thoughtful and responsible solutions that can and should be implemented, and the GCA will continue to advocate for commonsense solutions that can ensure a bright and prosperous future for the Postal Service. We strongly encourage lawmakers in Washington to do the same.
