USPS: Victory A Long Time Coming
The Printing Industries of America (PIA) hailed passage of H.R. 6407, the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act of 2006, approved by both the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate in the final hours before both chambers adjourned the 109th Congress on December 9, 2006. Passage of comprehensive postal reform legislation was PIA’s number one legislative goal this Congress. PIA is a co-founder of the Coalition for a 21st Century Postal Service, a bipartisan coalition of business, industry and labor groups that led the fight for updating our nation’s postal laws.
The printing industry owes a huge thank you to the Senate and House leadership for pushing completion of this effort to modernize the country’s postal system. PIA especially thanks U.S. Senators Collins, Lieberman and Carper, and U.S. Representatives Davis, Waxman and McHugh for their dogged determination and persistent leadership on the issue of postal reform over the past several years.
PIA now calls upon President Bush to sign H.R. 6407 into law as soon as possible.
