This is the August 24, 2020 hearing on "Protecting the Timely Delivery of Mail, Medicine, and Mail-In Ballots," held before the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Reform. From the opening statement of Carolyn B. Maloney: "In all of our districts, we are hearing from constituents about significant delays in the delivery of mail, medicines, food, and other supplies. These delays are especially concerning and potentially life-threatening during the coronavirus crisis. These are not isolated complaints. They are widespread. Our offices have been receiving thousands of calls and emails about the detrimental effects these delays are having on our veterans, seniors, small businesses, and families across the country. When we asked postal leaders about these delays, they downplayed them. They dismissed them as temporary. They discounted them as minor unintended consequences of reforms being put in place. But then we saw national headlines describing these delays in much more detail. [...] These steep declines did not start in April or May, when the corona crisis hit us, but in July when Mr. DeJoy came on board and began making his changes." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Louis DeJoy and Robert M. Duncan.
