I would like to thank the President for acknowledging the enormous value of the United States Postal Service to the nation’s commerce and communications. The President also recognized the urgent need for reform to ensure the Postal Service’s future viability.
The President has offered helpful recommendations to stabilize the Postal Service’s financial crisis.
We are looking forward to reviewing the plan in more detail and we are continuing to work with the White House and the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction on specific proposals that involve the Postal Service.
