It’s hardly a surprise to many in Washington’s postal community, but the lawmaker who crafted the House’s bipartisan postal legislation says his bill appears dead.
That is what departed House Oversight chairman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told The Hill newspaper shortly before his resignation from Congress became effective June 30.
“You can continue to get frustrated and whine about it or you can leave, so I’ve decided to leave,” Chaffetz told the paper.
“I’ve got three big prospects and no daylight to actually get them done, and that absolutely was a factor in making my decision,” he said.
One of those “prospects” was the postal bill, which Chaffetz said the House GOP leaders did not want to bring to the floor.
