RHINEBECK, N.Y. — U.S. Rep. Antonio Delgado, D-Rhinebeck, has launched a survey to gather information from Upstate New Yorkers about any mail delivery delays they are experiencing and their concerns about the future of the U.S. Postal Service.

Postmaster General Louis DeJoy – appointed by the Board of Governors of the U.S. Postal Service in May 2020 – has made major operational changes to the USPS during the COVID-19 pandemic that have contributed to significant mail delivery delays across the country, and have undermined the American people’s confidence in a 245-year-old institution, according to Delgado's office.

This weekend, the House will vote on the "Delivering for America Act," a bill which would prohibit the postal service from making any changes that impede prompt and reliable service during the COVID-19 pandemic, and requires USPS to reverse any initiatives that have slowed the service of mail, Delgado's office said.

The legislation seeks to stabilize the USPS at a time when many Americans are relying on home deliveries and reliable mail service more than ever, and prevent any targeted structural changes that would weaken the USPS and discourage Americans from voting by mail in the fall, Delgado's office said.
