New Mailers Coalition Urges Postal Reform

Share this content:
The Coalition for a 21st Century Postal Service, a new lobbying group composed of large users of the U.S. Postal Service, urged Congress to pass postal reform legislation in a letter Feb. 24.


The letter, sent to each member of the House of Representatives and Senate individually, is the first step in a legislative action campaign by the coalition to get a postal reform bill passed this year.


"The U.S. Postal Service is the linchpin of a $900 billion industry that employs more than nine million people," the letter said. "Failure to enact postal reform this year will inevitably expose a large part of the U.S. economy to serious harm."


Members include the Direct Marketing Association, America Online, the American Cancer Society, the Envelope Manufacturers Association, Magazine Publishers of America, Alliance of Nonprofit Mailers, the National Federation of Independent Business, Newsweek, Pitney Bowes, Primedia Inc., R.R. Donnelley and Time Warner.


A joint House-Senate hearing on postal reform is scheduled for March 23. Two more Senate hearings also are scheduled for March.
