Mailers defend the PRC’s public inquiry into Delivering for America
On April 20, the Postal Regulatory Commission opened a Public Inquiry docket to examine the Postal Service’s Delivering for America plan, particularly the initiative to relocate carriers from post offices to large Sorting & Delivery Centers. On May 5, the Postal Service filed a motion arguing that the PRC should reconsider its order creating the docket because the regulator lacks the authority to create such a “far-flung inquiry.”
Yesterday, two groups of mailers filed comments opposing the Postal Service’s motion. The mailers argue that the Commission was operating well within its authority to open the inquiry, and it needs to go forward.
