Smith Statement on Delay of Changes to USPS Operations at North Platte Facility

Adrian Smith

Washington, D.C. – Today, Rep. Adrian Smith (R-NE), released the following statement after United States Postmaster General Louis DeJoy agreed to delay the planned changes to operations at the North Platte, NE Mail Processing and Distribution Center until January 1, 2025.

"This change of plans is welcome news, and I would like to see it produce a turning point in the Postal Service's implementation of our feedback to improve performance. Frankly, rural Americans deserve better than increased delivery delays and inefficiencies. I will continue to monitor the status of delayed changes to the North Platte facility." 

In February Smith sent a letter to Postmaster General DeJoy expressing concerns over proposed removal of postal operations from the North Platte facility as part of USPS Mail Processing Facility Reviews.
