April 30, 2007 ó The Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) on Friday announced a new deadline for submitting comments on its reconsideration of certain provisions of the current postal rate case. The new deadline is this Friday, May 4.
DMA has asked our members to submit letters telling the PRC how the unexpected and exorbitant increases proposed for Standard Flat Mail will affect your business.
If you have not sent your letters yet, there is still time!
On March 19, the Governors of the US Postal Service (USPS) approved most of the Postal Regulatory Commissionís (PRC) postal rate recommendations. Most of the new rates will take effect on May 14, 2007.
However, after hearing from DMA members and others in the mailing community, the Governors requested reconsideration of the PRCís rate recommendations for Standard Mail flats (catalogs). The Governors also asked the PRC to reconsider recommended rates for the Non-Machinable Surcharge for First-Class Mail letters, and the Priority Mail Flat-Rate Box.
The PRC has been accepting public comments on the reconsideration. The original deadline of April 12 was extended, and the PRC has now announced that all comments must be submitted no later than Friday, May 4.
DMA wishes to thank the hundreds of members who have already responded.
Even if you have already sent letters, please submit new letters to the PRC so that your views will become part of this formal comment process.
