Directs the U.S. Postal Service (USPS), as an employer, to maintain a workforce of officers and employees necessary to meet its responsibilities with respect to homeland security, including the rapid residential delivery of medical countermeasures in the event of a biohazard attack against the United States, and natural disaster assistance.

House Republican Conference Summary

No summary available.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
