Rep. Waxman Requests Suspension of Efforts to Close Santa Monica Post Office

Sep 20, 2012 Issues: District Concerns
WASHINGTON, DC— Today, Rep. Henry A. Waxman sent a letter to Shoshana Grove, Secretary of the Postal Regulatory Commission, appealing the decision by the United States Postal Service (USPS) to close the Santa Monica Post Office.  In the letter Rep. Waxman states that USPS did not follow proper procedure on rules governing the post office closure by failing to provide adequate notice to the community, not considering the impact on the community, and failing to notify the community of fiscal impact of the closure. 
Rep. Waxman requests that the Postal Regulatory Commission ensure that USPS follow appropriate procedure and suspend its efforts to close the post office until completion of the appeals process.
