Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Sen. Thomas Carper, D-Del., left, greets Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, Sept. 26, 2013, prior to Donahoe testifying before the committee's hearing on reforming and renewing the US Postal Service.
