PRC to Review Postal Service Exigent Rate Adjustment

without comments

“This ‘Exigency Case’ requires the Commission to act on critically important issues involving fundamental interpretations of the 2006 law under which the Postal Service and the PRC operate, and the financial health of the mailing industry. This is the first request for an emergency rate increase since that law was enacted, and developing a balanced record for decision will pose serious challenges. We hope to hear from as broad a cross section of the public as possible,” said Chairman Ruth Y. Goldway.

The Commission now will establish a docket to conduct a public hearing on the Postal Service?s proposal. The Commission?s decision – to approve, reject or modify the proposal – is due on October 4. The docket order will establish the public comment period, highlight issues to be considered in the proceeding, and name a representative to represent the interests of the public.

Public comments can be made through the “contact PRC” button on the Commission’s website, www.prc.gov, and by mail addressed to the Secretary of the Commission, Postal Regulatory Commission, 901 New York Avenue NW, Suite 200, Washington DC 20268-000.
