Cosponsor H. Res. 993 and Oppose the Privatization of the U.S. Postal Service!

October 10, 2018

            For over 240 years, the United States Postal Service and our dedicated postal workforce have performed the essential government function of “providing postal services to bind the Nation together through the personal, educational, literary,
and business correspondence of the people.” In furtherance of this mission, the Postal Service and its more than 500,000 clerks, letter carriers, mail handlers, and other employees deliver the mail to over 157 million residential and business customers
six days a week nationwide.  Given the effectiveness of the Postal Service in fulfilling its critical public service mission, it is not surprising that the American people have consistently ranked the Postal Service as our most trusted government agency. 
In a
recent Gallup poll, an overwhelming majority of Americans also rated the Postal Service as “doing an excellent or good job.”

Strong Consumer Protections for PACE Loans

October 10, 2018

Residential Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) programs allow consumers to make energy efficient upgrades to their homes using money secured by a lien on the property, and to repay the loan through annual assessments on their property tax bills. Residential
PACE programs are currently operating in three states, California, Florida, and Missouri, although multiple states are in the process of setting up their own programs. Though designed with admirable goals in mind, these PACE products do not have the same level
of consumer protections as traditional lending products.
