Proposed Mail Delivery Change

USPSmailbox.jpeg You may have heard in the news that the U.S. Postal Service is proposing to reduce mail delivery from six days to five days per week. This is in response to budget shortfalls and a decline in the amount of mail processed through the U.S. Postal Service. The U.S. Congress has required six-day delivery service as part of appropriations acts for several decades (see 39 U.S.C. §403 note [2006] [Continuation of Mail Delivery Services]).

The first step in requesting the change in service is requesting an opinion from the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC), as described in 39 U.S.C. §3661. You can read all documents submitted as part of this request, including motions, orders, and interrogatories.

There are two ways the general public can submit comments to the PRC regarding the proposed changes:

  1. Use the online comment form through the PRC website; or
  2. File a notice of intervention online in compliance with the Commission's Rules of Practice.
