Report: Postal Reform Will Bring Lower Standard Rates
The study found that postage payments would be meaningfully smaller under either the House (H.R. 22) or Senate (S. 662) bills, with those under the Senate bill smaller than those under the House bill.
The postage savings are the result of the net cost savings from lifting the escrow and changing the retiree benefit payment mechanisms as prescribed by H.R. 22 and S. 662 as well as implementing a CPI-based rate indexing system beginning in 2008.
