On Monday, 13 Democratic lawmakers from the US House of Representatives urged the United States Postal Service Board of Directors to halt implementation of a potentially $ 6 billion contract to build up to 165,000 vehicles for next-generation delivery.

In February, USPS awarded a contract to Oshkosh Corp to build a range of electric and petrol vehicles rather than opting for Workhorse Group Inc to build an all-electric fleet.

Lawmakers, including Representative Gerald Connolly, who chairs a subcommittee overseeing the USPS, Jared Huffman Tim Ryan, Debbie Dingell, and others, have also suggested that the decision challenged President Joe Biden's executive order to supply electricity to the USPS fleet of vehicles. . . They urged a delay until the full review is complete and Biden's three candidates sit on the post office governing board.
