With the media's attention focused on new mailing technology innovations, such as parcel lockers for urban dwellers, rural residents are being overlooked for new innovations and improvements in basic delivery services from the USPS.

“Mail is a critical lifeline in rural America, and all North Dakotans deserve access to high-quality mail delivery and service, regardless of where they live” said US Senator Heidi Heitkamp from North Dakota, when she was discussing the reason for introducing the Rural Postal Act of 2015 with her fellow Senators Jon Tester, Claire McCaskill, and Gary Peters last week.
