EASTON, Md. - The Post Office in Easton remains in limbo, until the house decides to act on the postal reform bill, that would save it from shutting down. Senators Ben Cardin and Barbara Mikulski have been fighting to keep the mail processing center afloat. Wednesday, they called on the postal service to extend the current moratorium. Senator Mikulski tells us that they can't close a post office unless they ensure on time delivery within 72 hours.
"So I wanted to know from the post office how were they going to deliver the mail, and if you close it and your going to ship it to Delaware across the bay bridge, how much money are you going to save. They couldn't tell me," said Senator Mikulski.
Senator Tom Carper has also joined in on the postal reform initiative. He has launched a countdown to the deadline. Carper is calling on the house to pass the legislation before the deadline of May 15th.
