Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) said when it comes to working on the problems with the US Postal Service, Congress hasn’t done its job.
Heitkamp brought Postmaster General Megan Brennan to North Dakota, to hear first hand some of the concerns people have about the Postal Service. Heitkamp said Congress needs to allow the USPS to innovate – and find new ways to do business, as some of the traditional first class mail has gone away.
"We're seeing more e-mail, more e-bills, and fewer bank statements being sent out," Heitkamp said. "That has presented some real challenges."
