USPS Rate Increase- updated information

The USPS Rate increase has NOT been approved yet.

Previously, the PRC stated it would give the Public 7 days to Comment on the USPS response to the Remand Order. Based on the comment period, I doubt we will know whether or not the new rates are approved for a week or so; but keep in mind that they CAN be implemented by 5/31 if the USPS approves them as-filed.

It remains the hope that mailers will 1) prevail on the Exigency Appeal – with a decision soon – so that rates will need to be adjusted downward as soon as July or August of this year, and that 2) “possibly” the USPS could get approval of these rates, but voluntarily agree to postpone implementation so that mailers have only ONE price change this year – but that second “hope” may be a long shot. We recommend all customers plan for these rates to go into effect as of May 31, 2015.
