Senators press postal regulator on travel

Carper and the House Oversight chairman, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), had been critical in 2012 of Goldway’s travel schedule, saying the commission was falling behind on its duties.

Carper and Coburn, in their letter, thanked Goldway for changes already made to the “commission’s travel policies intended to control travel spending and encourage commission staff to utilize more cost-effective alternatives to travel.”

Goldway had responded to the shots at her travel schedule by saying that her position as PRC head required significant travel, and that the criticism was driven by those who didn’t like the regulator’s findings.
