The Postal Service Reform Act, H.R. 3076 was formally “presented” to President Biden on Monday, with a deadline to sign by Friday, April 8. Meanwhile, the US Postal Service Board of Governors met yesterday in Executive Session to discuss postal rates. The Alliance will inform members as soon as the official rates are filed, which we anticipate will be in early April. In addition, the Postal Regulatory Commission issued its FY 2021 Annual Compliance Determination this week, which assesses the Postal Service’s compliance with rates and service standards. The Commission is required to issue the Determination 90 days after filing the Annual Compliance Report.
