Alaska Delegation Responds to Postmaster General re: Bypass Mail Program

ANCHORAGE, AK – U.S. Sens. Lisa Murkowski, Dan Sullivan, and Rep. Don Young, all R-Alaska, issued the following statement in response to the Postmaster General’s testimony today regarding Alaska’s bypass mail program:

“We must be clear: the USPS is a vital lifeline to countless Alaskans, from our population centers to the farthest reaches of our vast state. Throughout the years, the Alaska delegation has defended mail delivery to rural Alaska. We’ve done it before and we’ll do it again. Simply put, the bypass mail program saves the Postal Service money, and fulfills the USPS’ Universal Service requirement.”
