More on Oversight
WASHINGTON – Congressman Kelly Armstrong of North Dakota doesn’t agree with why some of his Democratic colleagues are concerned with post office issues now.
The Republican is on the House Oversight Committee. The last time the panel had a hearing on financial issues with the post office was April 2019.
Forty-six states got a letter from the United States Postal Service — North Dakota among them — warning that the agency cannot guarantee the delivery of all ballots on time for the November general election.
The warning was based on the election laws and timelines for the states — but the situation is not a new concern, Rep. Kelly Armstrong said.
The Congressman sits on the Committee for Government Oversight and Reform, which, among other areas, has jurisdiction over the post office.
