TOP STORIES
USPS raises stamp price to 58 cents under DeJoy's 10-year plan
5.28.2021 - FOX Business reports: "The price increase is part of Postmaster General Louis DeJoy's 10-year plan, introduced in March, to reorganize the Post Office and avoid a projected $160 billion loss over the next decade. The initiative includes longer delivery times for some first-class mail, shorter hours for some post offices and more expensive postal rates." - USPS News Release - Comments (Count)
USPS Faces Preemptive Backlash to Expected Soaring Price Hikes
5.27.2021 - GovExec reports: "Constrained by inflationary caps, USPS has issued modest price increases of around 2% in recent years. This year, observers expect the hike could be as high as around 7% for First-Class Mail and higher for other products. In a recently released 10-year business plan, postal management said it expected to increase revenue by $35 billion to $52 billion over the next decade directly from rate increases." - Comments (Count)
Senators reach bipartisan deal to reform USPS finances, tighten accountability requirements
5.19.2021 - Anchorage Daily News reports: "A bipartisan group of senators is expected to introduce legislation Wednesday to lift significant financial burdens off the ailing U.S. Postal Service while tightening accountability requirements for mail delivery, a major stride toward reform for the agency that has tussled with its balance sheet and reputation for the better part of a year. The bill, identical to a version that's advanced in the House, would repeal $5 billion a year in mandatory retiree health care expenses and require future postal worker retirees to enroll in Medicare. Advocates say the measures will save the agency $30 billion over the next decade." - CNN: Bill could actually pass - Best shot at USPS reform gets better with 20 senators supporting - Senators expected to announce deal - Group of US senators backs $46 billion in relief for Postal Service - Comments (Count)
