The Postal Service Reform Act of 2022 was signed into law last month. Section 204 of that Act raised the annual cap on the number of copies that a Periodicals publisher can send to non-subscribers at In-County rates from 10 percent to 50 percent of your annual subscriber volume. The Postal Service has amended the Domestic Mail Manual section 207.7 accordingly. The Federal Register announcement makes this change effective now. The United States Postal Service plans to measure compliance on a calendar year basis.
