Rahall Meets with West Virginia Postmasters
“Our goal should be to increase the profitability and competitiveness of the Postal Service by improving and modernizing its services, rather than cutting off rural customers. The measure I have cosponsored would simultaneously bolster the long-term solvency of the Postal Service, while protecting mail delivery in West Virginia,” said Rahall, who has been active and vocal in opposing the Postal Service’s efforts to close and consolidate postal facilities in West Virginia.
H.R. 630, the Postal Service Protection Act, which Rahall has cosponsored, would adjust onerous pre-funding requirements for postal employees’ retiree health benefits, which are driving the Postal Service’s current budget deficits, and require the Treasury Department to refund the Postal Service’s overpayment of postal retirement benefits. The bill also would emphasize innovation and marketing, as well as technology and management, as part of a comprehensive strategy for maximizing USPS revenue.
