The ACMA believes that by gaining bipartisan support from Congress, as well as Postal Service management, its labor unions and the mailing community, this bill can truly make a difference to jobs in America while protecting critical infrastructure that all Americans rely on.
"Passage of this bill is vital for the future survival of our Postal Service," says the ACMA's President & Executive Director Hamilton Davison. "Absent Congressional action, users of the mail will face increasing uncertainty that will drive business out of the mail and effectively force unprecedented taxpayer support to keep the USPS afloat - and nobody wants that." Since 1971, the US Postal Service has been fully funded by postage. It receives no taxpayer funding.
"We sincerely hope the House of Representatives will quickly push this bill forward," Davison adds. "It has been studied, vetted, positively scored and is clearly good for all interests. Congress must demonstrate this is not business as usual and get this commonsense legislation passed into law."
