 U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) applauded Senate passage of bipartisan legislation he co-introduced to set the United States Postal Service (USPS) on a more sustainable financial footing and support the goal of providing long-term reliable service across the country. The bipartisan bill strengthens transparency and accountability for Postal Service performance, eliminates unnecessary financial burdens, and helps ensure the USPS can better serve the American people. 
“Over the last few months, I have worked hard to build bipartisan support for this important legislation that will make long-overdue to change to the U.S. Postal Service that will ensure its long-term suitability,” said Senator Tillis. “I am proud to have helped secure Senate passage so North Carolinians who count on the USPS to deliver prescriptions and utilize their services to facilitate commerce and pay their bills can receive prompt and reliable service. I also appreciate Postmaster General Louis DeJoy’s leadership in partnering with Congress to implement bipartisan reforms that will provide the USPS with the proper financial support and strengthen transparency and accountability. I look forward to this bill being signed into law soon.”
The Postal Service Reform Act would:
Eliminate the aggressive prefunding requirement that has hurt the Postal Service financially, and integrate postal worker retirees’ health care with Medicare. 
o Together, these two reforms would create $45.9 billion in savings for the Postal Service over the next ten years. 
Require the Postal Service to maintain its standard of delivering at least six days a week.
Improve transparency of Postal Service operations to both customers and Congress by requiring the publication of easily accessible weekly service data on the Postal Service website, as well as issuing a detailed report to Congress every six months on Postal Service finances and operations. The bill also includes bipartisan provisions for Postal Service accountability and growth.
