The News/Media Alliance recently became a member of Keep Us Posted, a stakeholder and consumer organization dedicated to a more reliable and affordable Postal Service, specifically focused on market dominant mail. Keep Us Posted advocated for Rep. Congressman Gerry Connolly (D-VA) to introduce HR 8781, the Ensuring Accurate Postal Rates Act, which requires the Postal Regulatory Commission to reconsider and reduce the current postage rate cap. Meanwhile, the USPS is poised to announce higher postal rates within the next week, and the Alliance will send out more detailed information once the rates have been filed. We will continue to work with the USPS, Congress, and this coalition to continue addressing increasing postal rates and poor service delivery.
