WASHINGTON (May 21, 2014) Millions of Americans would no longer get mail delivered to their door but would go to communal or curbside boxes instead, under a proposed law that the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform debated Wednesday.
The bill would direct the U.S. Postal Service to convert 1.5 million addresses a year over the next decade to the less costly but less convenient delivery method.
U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, D-Mass., called it "a lousy idea."
Other lawmakers said it wouldn't work in urban areas where there's no place on city streets to put so-called "cluster boxes" that serve multiple homes.
The measure is far short of the comprehensive reform needed to solve the agency's financial problems, but Republican committee chairman Darrell Issa of California called it a common-sense, interim measure to save money.
