On April 25, S. 1789 passed the Senate.

See C-21′s view in a side-by-side comparison of Legislative Postal Reform Proposals H.R. 2309 and S. 1789 HERE.

More from C-21:

  • Why HR 2309 needs to be passed now.
  • Why a rate increase is not the answer.
  • Postal Reform vs. Postal Bailout? Why ‘bailout’ is not the right term.

Call to Action!

Contact your local representatives now and let them know: Approve S. 1789 as reported without rate increase amendments.

Any amendments of that nature will bring significant harm to the mailing industry, the USPS, and the supply chain that depends on it.
