Two Missouri Congressmen want a federal commission to re-evaluate U.S. Postal Service rate hikes.
Republican Congressman Sam Graves and Democratic Congressman Emanuel Cleaver have introduced a bill that would direct the Postal Regulatory Commission to take a look at the rate-setting system.
Graves says historically, the agency has only raised rates with inflation but he says it continues to boost rates above inflation.
According to Graves, the Postal Service had a 60-billion-dollar net profit last quarter and the federal government gave it 10-billion-dollars in covid relief funding.
