Senate Amendment Sets Aside Funds for Postal Reform Bill

Share this content:
The Senate approved an amendment during debate on its fiscal year 2005 budget last week to set aside funds to enact comprehensive postal reform legislation.


Sponsored by Governmental Affairs Committee chair Susan Collins, R-ME, and Sen. Tom Carper, D-DE, the amendment would establish a reserve fund to be used in bringing the bill to the Senate floor.


"This amendment puts the Senate on notice that we intend to move a postal reform bill this year," Collins said.


Collins and Carper plan to introduce reform legislation next month. The Senate Governmental Affairs Committee has held six hearings on postal reform. The expected final hearing is set for March 23 in conjunction with the House Government Reform Committee.
