Postmaster General Louis DeJoy said that by 2026, all new vehicles will be electric vehicles (EV).
New electric mail trucks are expected to begin servicing postal routes in late 2023.
The USPS announces it will make 40 percent of its new mail trucks battery electric, up from the agency’s plans for 10 percent earlier this year.
“DeJoy’s decision-making as postmaster general has raised some serious ethical questions—now we should finally get some answers.”
"The only way to begin to defend the post office is to fire DeJoy."
“Shrouding his calendar in secrecy likely violates the letter of the law, and certainly violates its spirit.”
A federal judge slammed the policies as a "politically motivated attack" on the U.S. Postal Service that—if allowed to stand—would disenfranchise voters in November.
More than 50,000 workers have taken time off for virus-related reasons, slowing mail delivery.
“We know Louis DeJoy is sabotaging the Postal Service—and our investigation reveals his scheming has slowed the delivery of mail-order prescription drugs, threatening health risks for millions of Americans during a pandemic.”
