More Postal Reform is Necessary for IndustryJuly 2003
These recommendations will likely result in—you guessed it—more legislation focused on comprehensive postal reform. This legislation will be paramount to the continued financial viability of the USPS and the mailing industry at large.
So, I'd like to leave you with a friendly challenge. Passing the Postal Civil Service Retirement System Funding Reform Act of 2003 is a clear demonstration of the powerful role that lobbying can play. The mailing industry must learn from the experience of passing CSRS legislation and leverage this knowledge to ensure that the recommendations of the President's Commission pass through Congress as quickly as possible.
While passing CSRS legislation was difficult, passing a comprehensive reform package will be even harder. The entire industry must act together to move the legislation through. I challenge you to make it so.
