USPS Defends Slower Mail Proposal Before Its Regulator
U.S. Postal Service officials in recent days defended the agency’s plan to slow down delivery for some mail to members of the public, suggesting the reform would achieve significant savings and allow its customers to follow a more predictable schedule.
The question-and-response session came as part of the Postal Regulatory Commission’s review of the mail delivery window changes, issued under Postmaster General Louis DeJoy’s 10-year plan to eliminate USPS losses. Postal officials defended the models they used in making assumptions related to their plans, though they repeatedly stated they did not evaluate the impact on particular groups or reach out to customers at all.
