Voters are expected to rely heavily on mail-in ballots in November amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. DeJoy said Tuesday that retail hours at post offices will not change and additional mail processing equipment and collection boxes will not be moved.

She said his announcement “is not a solution and is misleading.” 

“The Postmaster General’s alleged pause is wholly insufficient and does not reverse damage already wreaked. The Postmaster General frankly admitted that he had no intention of replacing the sorting machines, blue mailboxes and other key mail infrastructure that have been removed and that plans for adequate overtime, which is critical for the timely delivery of mail, are not in the works,” Pelosi said.

The House is set to return to Washington, D.C., Saturday to pass Postal Service legislation that is expected to include $25 billion in funding as well as blocking changes to its operations.
