Carper Introduces Bill Aimed to Reform Postal Operations and Finances

September 17, 2015:  Earlier today, Senator Tom Carper (D-DE), who serves as the Ranking Member on the Senate Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs Committee, introduced a bill that seeks to address and reform several key components of the operations and finances of the United States Postal Service.  While the Carper bill, which is called the Improving Postal Operations, Service and Transparency Act of 2015 (iPOST), addresses numerous important provisions -- many of which have evolved over several years of discussions among various postal stakeholders -- the NPMHU nevertheless views this proposed legislation as a work-in-progress. 

The NPMHU has long been engaged in discussions surrounding postal reform legislation, and will continue to work with its allies throughout the postal community to refine the iPOST bill, in an attempt to fashion final legislation which will best serve the collective interests of NPMHU members, the USPS, and the customers who rely on postal products and services.
