Pennsylvania Joins the ‘Do-Not-Mail’ Bandwagon
Add Pennsylvania to the list of states hit by “Do-Not-Mail” legislation. A bill to “prohibit unsolicited mail” was introduced in early May in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. HB 2551 was introduced by Rep. Nicholas Micozzie (R-Delaware County) along with 44 co-sponsors.
The bill text was not available at press time, as the Pennsylvania House of Representatives was in recess. Pennsylvania is the 12th state this year to see such legislation introduced; in no state has a bill actually advanced to a floor vote.
PIA/GATF and its local Graphic Arts Association (GAA) affiliate, which serves the Delaware Valley region, will continue to monitor this and other initiatives that could drastically reduce USPS mail volume. Also, PIA/GATF and other industry organizations, such as the DMA, are working with various business groups and legislators to educate them about the importance of direct mail for consumers, businesses and the economy.
