The U.S. Postal Service is in dire need of a clean, modern, and customized mail truck fleet and after rigorous and careful study has a sensible plan to get there. But Congress could mess this up and create additional problems by demanding an all-electric, non-emitting fleet as soon as possible while also imposing huge mandates on USPS which will needlessly cost the American people billions. Congressional interference will have far ranging negative consequences including higher costs, a dirtier fleet, and create a precedent for political cronyism and blatant interference in the Postal Service’s operations. Lexington Institute’s Paul Steidler discusses this in the Op-Ed here.
