Sorensen Statement on USPS Decision to Pause Movement of Milan Mail Processing and Distribution Center

Congressman Eric Sorensen (IL-17) released the following statement in response to a letter from U.S. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy which states that the United States Postal Service (USPS) will "pause any implementation of moves" for mail processing centers "at least until after January 1, 2025." 


“The Milan Processing and Distribution Center provides essential services for communities in Northwestern Illinois, and any action that would put local jobs at risk or diminish customer service is unacceptable. I am pleased that USPS has paused any potential changes through 2024, and I will continue to work to protect jobs in Milan and ensure that our neighbors receive their mail on time.” 


In February, Sorensen sent a letter to USPS Postmaster DeJoy expressing serious concerns about the USPS' Mail Processing Facility Review (MPFR) of the Milan Processing and Distribution Center (P&DC) facility. 


In addition, Sorensen and Congresswoman Nikki Budzinski (IL-13) urged Congressional leaders to prevent USPS facilities that were not meeting the 2023 goals for First-Class on-time mail delivery rates from being downsized, protecting rural communities and workers.
