From PostCom, earlier this week:
The Postal Regulatory Commission has issued a “Notice And Order On Field Hearings To Receive Testimony On Implementation Of Modern System Of Ratemaking” in Docket No. RM2007-1.
PostCom President Gene Del Politio urged mailers to participate in a memo sent to PostCom Members – I reiterate that sentiment, and also strongly encourage particpation as new rate making rules are established. Mailer feedback and participation in the process is imperative.
Get involved, be informed!
From the PostCom Memo, reprinted with permission:
