Nonprofit Postal Rate Recommendations Ignored
At the same time, DMA expressed its disappointment that the Board of Governors did not allow additional time for many nonprofit mailers to revise and test new mailing campaigns.
The Governors announced this afternoon their acceptance of most of the recommendations put forth by the PRC on February 26. But after hearing from many within the mailing community, the Governors asked the PRC to reconsider its recommendations for Standard Mail flats. The PRC’s proposed rates were more than double what the USPS had originally requested in May 2006, and would be devastating to many of America’s catalog mailers.
