PIA Rejects Privatization of US Postal Service

Posted Friday, July 27, 2018 by Jules VanSant.

PIA and its allies have responded to a Trump Administration plan to reform and streamline government agencies, part of which recommended an eventual sale and privatization of the US Postal Service. They warned that the recommendation would create uncertainty in the mailing marketplace and that transposing a European system to the US (as outlined in the report) would face myriad challenges.

PIA’s is recommending the US Congress to adopt a two-step process: 1) short-term stabilization in the form of House and Senate postal reform bills; and 2) a longer-term solution based on substantial changes to the USPS business model, which may be based in part on the Trump postal reform task force recommendations forthcoming in August.
