Senate Sends Postal Reform Bill to President to Become Law

March 9, 2022

Last night, the U.S. Senate passed the bipartisan Postal Service Reform Act (HR 3076). The strong bipartisan 79-18 vote sends the bill to President Biden for his signature. The Postal Service Reform Act will eliminate much of the Postal Service’s debt and restructure some of its operations. Additionally, the bill codifies USPS’s 6-day delivery network for both mail and packages - rejecting proposals to split mail and packages into separate networks, which would have resulted in inefficiencies and increased prices. This is the first major legislative reform of USPS that Congress has passed in 15 years and provides significant financial relief as USPS works to improve services and operations. 

On behalf of the millions of small businesses across the country that rely on USPS, eBay applauds Congress for passing this important piece of legislation.
