Issa criticizes USPS rate increases, lack of reforms

without comments

“This week, the postal service’s unprecedented, above-inflation rate hike goes into effect,” Issa said. “At the same time, the postal service just recently disclosed that it once again has decided to delay necessary cost-cutting reforms already in motion to appease the avowed opponents of postal reform. Relying solely on rate increases will not save the postal service from insolvency.”

USPS flagged a number of redundant facilities in 2011 for closure and consolidation in an effort to increase operational efficiencies but recently announced plans to postpone a final decision.
