Johnson votes against bill providing financial support for Postal Service

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WNAX) – The U.S. House passed a $25 billion bill over the weekend aimed at shoring up the U.S. Postal Service.

South Dakota Congressman Dusty Johnson voted against the bill.

Johnson says the Postal Service hasn’t said they need that much money.

Johnson says he does want the Postal Service to be able to keep offices in small towns across the state.

The Senate will not return to Washington until after Labor Day and there is no certainty the bill will come up for debate.
