Jeff Sessions coming to Demopolis

Published 9:12pm Tuesday, April 24, 2012

U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) will visit the Farmhouse Restaurant in Demopolis on Monday, April 30 at 1 p.m. to meet with local officials and residents to discuss issues impacting the local economy, including energy, taxes, spending and debt.

Sessions has made headlines as of late, thanks to his stance on postal reform.

Monday, Sessions opposed the 21st Century Postal Service Act in its current form, arguing it violates the debt limit agreement reached last summer.

The postal bill is designed to prevent the closure of many rural post offices that would ordinarily result due to the USPS’s current financial bind.

Sessions claimed the measure would increase the federal deficit by $34 billion.
