Cardenas Reintroduces Bill to Require USPS Trucks to Have Air Conditioning


Legislation that would require all U.S. Postal Service delivery vehicles to have air conditioning — following the death of a 63-year-old carrier who was found inside her truck amid soaring temperatures in Woodland Hills in 2018 — is once again coming before Congress, Rep. Tony Cardenas, D-Panorama City, announced Thursday.

Cardenas reintroduced the Peggy Frank Memorial Act, named after the North Hills resident who died from heat exhaustion in 117-degree weather while working her route. Frank’s postal truck did not have air conditioning.

Frank was found unresponsive in her truck in July 2018 and pronounced dead at the scene. The coroner’s office listed her primary cause of death as hyperthermia — above normal body temperature — and obesity, and idiopathic cardiomyopathy, or heart disease, as “other significant conditions.”
