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.
recent Gallup poll, an overwhelming majority of Americans also rated the Postal Service as “doing an excellent or good job.”

We live in an increasingly digitized world. Digital goods and services make consumption of entertainment media more convenient and have a lighter carbon footprint than their tangible analogs. In addition, many vital health, education, and computer systems
have turned to digital goods and services to increase the reliability and efficiency of access to important data.
Please join me as an original cosponsor of the
LGBT Data Inclusion Act, a bill that would improve our Federal population surveys by requiring the collection of voluntary, self-disclosed information on sexual orientation and gender identity in certain federal surveys, including the Census.
Please join me in signing a bipartisan letter urging FAA to implement safety provisions enacted last year to require secondary cockpit barriers on all new passenger airplanes. Since this requirement was enacted, some opponents of the enacted provisions
have claimed that Congress only intended secondary cockpit barriers be added to new types of aircraft. This is not correct, Congress intended to add these safety barriers to newly manufactured passenger airplanes. As the agency works on implementation of
the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018, we want to make sure they are clear about our Congressional intent.
Please join us as a cosponsor of H.R. 2420, the National Museum of the American Latino Act. Nearly 58 million Latinos, or 18.1 percent of the population, reside in the United States. By 2060, the U.S. Census Bureau estimates this population will reach
119 million, or nearly 30 percent of the population. Latinos also account for 25 percent of the nation’s 54 million K-12 students in 2016, up from 16 percent in 2000. This young, vibrant, and growing community not only represents the future, but they also
make up the largest and fastest growing racial or ethnic group in the country. Yet, Latinos still face systemic under-representation in nearly every facet of American life. The growing disparity is most evident in our arts and cultural institutions.
I invite you to join me in sending a letter to Postmaster General Brennan to urge her to implement postal banking pilot programs. Under its existing authority, the United States Postal Service can provide affordable financial services, including ATMs, pay-check
cashing, bill payment and electronic money transfers. This is crucial for both rural and urban communities that face limited banking options. There is a Post Office in every part of this country and they can be critical in providing much needed financial services
for communities that are underserved by financial institutions.
I wanted to make sure you saw this article from the
Huffington Post verifying the administration is planning to make deep cuts to USPS employee benefits. We can help the USPS save money without stripping workers of their hard-earned benefits, that’s why I urge you to cosponsor H.R. 2382.
We invite you to cosponsor H.R. 1641, the bipartisan LEGION Act. Senator Sinema and Senator Tillis introduced similar legislation, which recently passed the Senate.
