USPS seeking mailer input on new law

Share this content:

The U.S. Postal Service is asking mailers for input on the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act.

The act, enacted on Dec. 20, 2006, strengthens the authority of the renamed PRC and changes the form of regulatory oversight in many respects. In addition, it grants the USPS more autonomy in setting rates, particularly for its competitive products.

However, the USPS's ability to increase rates for market-dominant products is limited by changes in the Consumer Price Index. Moreover, the legislation streamlines the USPS's ability to introduce new postal products. The Act, the provisions of which must take effect by June 2008, also provides for predictable annual price changes.

The USPS said it is currently working with the PRC on the best time to implement these price changes, and is it is seeking feedback from the mailing community on the subject.

It is asking mailers to take a few minutes to respond to a short survey (http://survey2.voicefive.com/wix/p14061239.aspx) so it can consider its input. Responses must be in by Thursday, April 26.
