USPS prepares mailers for new postal law effects

Share this content:

WASHINGTON - The diligence the U.S. Postal Service is taking to interpret the new postal law and communicate its effects to its customers became clear at the quarterly meeting of the Mailers' Technical Advisory Committee.

On Dec. 20, President Bush signed into law the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act, the first major change at the USPS since 1971. The law benefits customers by ensuring predictable price increases tied to the Consumer Price Index and lets the agency continue its transformation efforts and cost-cutting measures.

Linda Kingsley, the new vice president of strategy and transition at USPS, announced that the agency is working closely on the bill and has published a new Web page at It will give visitors updates on any changes the agency has made to the new law.

Ms. Kingsley and the strategy and transition group will also have a lead role in identifying, planning and managing the timely implementation of the new law's provisions. In this regard, the group will serve as the primary liaison among all functions with roles in this process, with the ultimate goal of having maximum levels of integration, cooperation and success.

Postmaster General John E. Potter announced that the Postal Regulatory Commission and the USPS will hold a conference March 13 titled "Meeting Customer Needs in a Changing Regulatory Environment." There, they will discuss how the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act could increase the agency's ability to meet customer needs. The event will take place at the Bolger Center in Potomac, MD.
