Nonprofit Postal Rate Recommendations Ignored
Monday, March 19, 2007 — The Governors of the US Postal Service (USPS) this afternoon approved most of the Postal Regulatory Commission’s (PRC) postal rate recommendations, which were announced on February 26. Most of the new rates will take effect on May 14, 2007.
The Governors listened to DMA’s members and requested reconsideration of the PRC’s rate recommendations for Standard Mail flats (catalogs). The Governors also ask the PRC to reconsider recommended rates for the Non-Machinable Surcharge for First-Class Mail letters, and the Priority Mail Flat-Rate Box.
