From the National League of Postmasters
September 10, 2010
Draft legislative provisions are floating around the Senate that 1) eliminate the prohibition against closing, for financial reasons only, small rural post offices and 2) gut the statutory Post Office Closing Provisions that are designed to protect rural communities.
The League believes that such provisions are not in rural America’s best interest, and will do what is necessary to see that these provisions do not become law. We will be monitoring closely if this draft legislative provision becomes a bill and gains sponsorship. The League will provide updates on any change in the status of this important Legislative issue.
