Lincoln, NE – Congressman Jeff Fortenberry today made the following statement on a report issued by the United States Postal Service Office of the Inspector General:

“Earlier this year I asked the United States Postal Service Office of the Inspector General (OIG) to investigate numerous constituent reports of problems with the mail system in Nebraska. The report was posted on September 28 on the OIG website, and I am reviewing its conclusions. It remains unclear as to whether all mail problems have been resolved. I will continue to engage with Postal officials to address concerns in the report.”

Congressman Fortenberry wrote to Inspector General David C. Williams on March 3, 2016. The Office of Inspector General is an independent office of the Postal Service under the general supervision of nine presidentially appointed governors. It is also required to provide semiannual reports to Congress. The most recent report can be viewed here.
