One such member is Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., who “does not support the bill in the current form and has several issues with it,” according to a spokesman. Baldwin has introduced an amendment to eliminate a provision of the Carper-Coburn bill that would give the Postal Service more freedom in setting its prices.

As currently written, the legislation would allow the existing inflation-based rate cap to expire in 2016 and eliminate the Postal Regulatory Commission’s role in issuing advisory opinions on major changes to service standards. Baldwin, echoing concerns previously raised by the mailing industry, said USPS should not be given authority to raise its rates to unsustainable levels that would ultimately reduce business and mailing-sector jobs.
