Dear Progressive Secretary Supporter

Here is another action alert from Progressive Secretary.

Our letter supports campaigns by Americans for Financial Reform, Climate Hawks Vote, Democracy for America, Progress America, and others. It asks Congress to support H.R. 7018.

This bill will “prohibit the United States Postal Service from carrying out a contract for the procurement of next-generation vehicle fleet unless such fleet is at least 75 percent electric or zero-emission vehicles.”

We will send your email message to your House member
.

Stop the Post Office from purchasing gas-guzzling, polluting fleet vehicles.

Despite President Biden’s executive order to electrify all federal vehicles to combat climate change, the postmaster general recently contracted for a fleet of new gas-guzzling mail vehicles. Since the USPS is a quasi-independent agency, the president has no authority to order its fleet electrification.

Postal Service vehicles make up a third of the government’s fleet. The average age of the postal fleet is 30 years. The fleet spews pollution and guzzles gas. Replacing these vehicles is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to bring electric vehicle technology to America’s second-largest vehicle fleet.

Please vote for H.R. 7018. Prohibit the USPS from procuring vehicles unless the fleet contains at least 75 percent electric or zero-emission vehicles.

Kathie Turner, Executive Director
