House Panel Investigates Mail Delays

Postmaster general answers questions before Oversight Committee.

On Wednesday, the House Oversight Committee interviewed Postmaster General Louis DeJoy about the ongoing issues with the USPS related to mail delays. In his testimony, Postmaster General DeJoy accepted that things were not operating as he would like and offered up a ten-year plan to address the issues. “My message is that the status quo should be acceptable to no one,” the postmaster general said. 

Following his testimony before the Committee, President Biden announced that he had made three appointments to the Postal Service’s Board of Governors – the body that has the authority to appoint DeJoy’s position. Currently, 80% of national mail is being delivered on time, which is far below the 96% target for delivery. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Postmaster DeJoy as he seeks to eliminate mail delays. 
  • For Congress as they work to address issues with the U.S. Postal Service. 
  • For God to give President Biden discernment in who he appoints to open positions.
