TOP STORIES
USPS Regulator Approves Price Spike But Warns Mail Slowdowns Could Have Worse-Than-Expected Impact
7.20.2021 - GovExec reports: "The Postal Regulatory Commission on Tuesday did not flat out reject Postmaster General Louis DeJoy's plan to slow down delivery windows for some mail, but suggested the proposal was not fully thought out and its success was far from guaranteed. On Monday, it signed off on the Postal Service's new pricing structure set to go into effect later this year." - PRC Issues Advisory Opinion (PDF) - Linn's: PRC endorses USPS rate case - Controversial Plan Slammed By Postal Regulator - Comments (Count)
Capitol Hearing Focuses on Frustrations With Mail Delays
7.14.2021 - WUSA 9 reports: "Today, we leave mail behind because of plant processing issues, machines breaking down and fewer machines in the building. We make fewer trips, we are understaffed and we are required to stick to a rigid delivery schedule which requires drivers like myself to leave with trucks that are not fully loaded," postal truck driver Brian McLaurin said during the hearing. "To make matters even worse, postal facilities are short-staffed. When mail finally arrives at the station, there are not enough workers to process the mail and get it through for delivery." - IG Whitcomb Testifies Before U.S. Senate (PDF) - C-SPAN - Coons Grills USPS Inspector General Over Delays - USPS mail delays continue throughout the state, frustrated Marylanders testify on Capitol Hill - Comments (Count)
