WASHINGTON – The head of the U.S. Postal Service has no plans to reverse changes to infrastructure that lawmakers feared could disrupt mail-in voting in November, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said.  

Pelosi said she spoke with Postmaster General Louis DeJoy on Wednesday and told him "his announcement is not a solution and is misleading."

"The Postmaster General frankly admitted that he had no intention of replacing the sorting machines, blue mailboxes and other key mail infrastructure that have been removed and that plans for adequate overtime, which is critical for the timely delivery of mail, are not in the works," she said.

The Postal Service deferred comment on the meeting with Pelosi to DeJoy's statement Tuesday announcing a pause in changes until after the election. DeJoy's statement did not address whether changes already in place would be reversed.
