NNA joins alliance, files motion to dismiss postal rate increase proposal

The National Newspaper Association Monday joined a nationwide alliance of nearly 700 companies and associations calling for the Postal Regulatory Commission to promptly dismiss a request for a major postage rate increase.

The Affordable Mail Alliance, representing NNA members and many other mailers’ organizations, told the PRC today that the Postal Service must not be permitted to hike rates beyond inflation.

“Allowing the Postal Service to raise prices above the Consumer Price Index in this case would nullify the single most important safeguard for mailers and the public in the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act of 2006,” AMA argues in its motion.
