House to vote on $25b for USPS

Interrupting its summer recess, members of the House are set to vote on a bill, called "Delivering for America Act", that would allocate $25 billion to the United States Postal Service and block operational changes that are said to delay mail delivery. Democrats as well as some Republicans have voiced concerns that the previous changes (elimination of overtime, removing some high-volume mail sorting machines, etc.) to the USPS could jeopardize mail-in ballots during the 2020 elections. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy has stated that his "number one priority" was that these changes would not affect the delivery of election mail.
