Speaker Nancy Pelosi told Democrats on Sunday evening that the House will be called back from August recess — likely on Saturday, Axios is told — to act to “save the Postal Service.”

“To save the Postal Service,” Pelosi wrote, “I am also calling upon Members to participate in a Day of Action on Tuesday by appearing at a Post Office in their districts for a press event.”

The likely plan is for the House to travel back to Washington on Friday and convene on Saturday.

The expected starting point for action will be a measure introduced by House Oversight Chair Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.), “Delivering for America Act,” which “would prohibit the Postal Service from dialing back levels of service it had in place” on Jan. 1, until the pandemic ends.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib joins AM JOY to discuss the House Oversight Committee calling on Postmaster General Louis DeJoy to testify at an urgent hearing about the crisis at the United States Postal Service on August 24.

Ms. G

Welcome back, America!
