The US Post Office Gets The Help It Needs 

April 17, 2017 | Kopytek

The U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Government Reform passed H.R. 756 (better known as the Postal Service Reform Act) earlier this year. The act is slated to bring critically needed financial modernization to the United States Postal Service (USPS).

The legislation was sponsored by Representatives Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), Elijah Cummings (D-MD), Mark Meadows (R-NC), and Gerry Connolly (D-VA), and was reported favorably out of committee by a bipartisan voice vote.

The Printing Industries of America (PIA) celebrated the passage of H. R. 756. PIA believes H. R. 756 has the ability to address and correct unrealistic financial burdens placed on the USPS. The PIA is now looking to the full U.S. House of Representatives to pass the postal reform and modernization legislation.

PIA President and CEO Michael Makin commented on the passage. “PIA commends the hard work of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and congratulates lawmakers on achieving the first step toward meaningful postal reform in the 115th Congress. PIA member companies are in constant innovation mode to offer new techniques that make the mail more relevant to consumers. A viable USPS offering affordable, predictable rates is a critical delivery partner for print. H.R. 756 — a true bipartisan compromise supported by industry, labor, and USPS — would provide the necessary stability for USPS.”
