For many years now, the Postal Service has published state-by-state lists of its owned and leased facilities under the Freedom of Information Act. The practice represents the kind of transparency one expects from a government agency.

For some reason, the Postal Service recently decided that the reports on its 23,000 leased properties were providing too much transparency. A few days ago, it quietly stopped sharing some of the information it had been providing previously. Now the reports include only the bare minimum — the post office’s address and the square footage of the interior and site — and everything else is considered too confidential to be made public.

This is the second time the Postal Service has reduced the scope of the reports.
