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

            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.

Cosponsor H.Res.1081, the Bipartisan Rail Safety Week Resolution

Please join us as a cosponsor of H.Res.1081, a bipartisan resolution to designate the week of September 23-29, 2018 as Rail Safety Week.

According to data from the Federal Railroad Administration, there were 821 rail-related fatalities and 8,697 rail-related injuries in the United States in 2017. Many of these accidents could have been easily prevented with the proper intervention to educate
pedestrians and motorists on the dangers of rail trespassing and the need for care when navigating highway-grade rail crossings. The use of headphones, distraction by cell phones, and use of alcohol or drugs are thought to play a role in many rail trespassing
fatalities, which is the leading cause of all rail-related fatalities.
