POSTAL REFORM UPDATE
It has been three months since the House Committee on Oversight and Reform unanimously reported out the Postal Reform Act of 2021, H.R. 3076. The legislation would create financial stability for the Postal Service by repealing the 2006 mandate to prefund retiree health care benefits and by enrolling future postal retirees into Medicare when eligible.

SENATE PASSES INFRASTRUCTURE BILL AND FY22 BUDGET PLAN
In just 24 hours, the Senate passed two historic spending bills that would both have impacts on the national economy and job creation, as well as the Postal Service and its workforce.

HOUSE REINTRODUCES FEDERAL RETIREMENT FAIRNESS ACT
Many postal and federal employees begin their time in the workforces as a temporary or non-career employee before becoming a permanent employee. However, as temporary employees, they cannot make or receive contributions to their retirement benefits.
