Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Michigan’s senior U.S. Senator has introduced an amendment stopping the U.S. Postal Service from closing facilities for two years.
Senator Debbie Stabenow joined with 12 other senators in authoring the measure, which seeks to prevent delays in services that will impact Michigan families and small businesses.
The amendment would also re-establish overnight delivery standards for first-class mail.
The Postal Service announced last July that they would begin consolidating facilities.
So far, 82 mail processing facilities are being consolidated, including mail processing centers in Kingsford, Kalamazoo, and Lansing.
