Merkley Applauds US Postal Service Decision to Keep Oregon Mail Processing Centers Open

WASHINGTON, DC – Oregon’s Senator Jeff Merkley issued the following statement after learning that the U.S. Postal Service is planning to keep all Oregon Mail Processing Centers Open for the next year. 

“This is more good news for Oregon. Closing processing centers in Oregon would have damaged overnight delivery and degraded services that small businesses and families rely upon. I am pleased that Oregon is safe in this round of closures but I encourage the U.S. Postal Service to continue working with communities and looking for solutions that will work for the public. And I urge the House of Representatives to pass the Senate postal reform bill that would help establish delivery standards and keep our rural post offices open.”
