The House on Saturday passed a bill aimed at rolling back service cuts at the U.S. Postal Service that Democrats say could harm the ability of Americans to vote by mail in the November presidential election that’s being shadowed by the coronavirus pandemic.

The “Delivering for America” measure, which would allocate an additional $25 billion for the Postal Service, had limited Republican support. It passed 257 to 150, with 26 GOP members voting yes.
