Frontiers of Freedom President George Landrith Makes Statement on Postal Reform

By George LandrithFrontiers of Freedom

On February 2, 2017, Frontiers of Freedom President, George Landrith made the following statement on Postal Reform:

“With a nationwide decline in the service performance standards of the U.S. Postal service, members of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have introduced a bill that is ill-equipped to handle the real problem at hand. For two consecutive years USPS has failed to meet delivery goals for nearly every First-Class mail product and yet the bill fails to properly establish greatly needed mail performance requirements. This bill also ignores the rate-setting process with its regulator by calling for a price increase that further jeopardizes the Postal Service’s fundamental charge to provide quality service at reasonable cost. Instead of pulling the Postal Service out of the gutter where it currently lies, this bill regrettably keeps the structural problems that plague the federal agency and limits their ability to put customers first.”
