New Congress seeks to revive postal reform

The Alliance of Nonprofit Mailers reports that the Senate subcommittee with postal jurisdiction has been pressing the U.S. Postal Service for a “comprehensive and realistic transformation plan” to serve as a blueprint for postal reform. The USPS is scheduled to deliver the plan to the Senate in the coming weeks, the Alliance says. The Senate has also asked the USPS and the Postal Rate Commission to provide background information on the feasibility of negotiated service contracts or “Niche Classification Cases,” designed to give large-volume mailers rate adjustments to encourage more mail volume. In addition to the Senate push, Postal Rate Commission chairman George Omas has suggested that the USPS present more experimental classification proposals as a way to increase sagging standard and first class mail volume.
