U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill today formally unveiled her plan to protect rural communities across the country from losing their post offices. McCaskill, who helped win the current moratorium on post office closures late last year, is introducing an amendment which would bar the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) from closing rural post offices during the next two years. Thereafter, the USPS could only close a rural post office if strict criteria are met—including that seniors who rely on the post office to receive life-saving prescription drugs would have the same or substantially similar service.
