>The future of the Postal Service: Two things to watch — and neither involves ending Saturday mail delivery or closing post offices — two no-go options in an election year. Expect Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.) to introduce a postal reform bill that addresses a long-simmering dispute between USPS and the Office of Personnel Management regarding overpayments — by as much as $75 billion — to the old Civil Service Retirement System. The bill might help close the Postal Service’s estimated 10-year, $280 billion budget gap. Also — for the second year in a row, lawmakers are likely to address the $5.5 billion in prepayments that USPS must make to its retiree health benefits by allowing it to pay less than required.
