ACTION ALERT: Feedback Needed on Postal Proposal

Posted by National Catholic Development Conference on Sep 6, 2018 12:34:45 PM

The mailing of premiums by religious charitable mailers is at grave risk.  We ask that you submit comments to the Postal Service as soon as possible in opposition to the August 23 Federal Register Notice of USPS.  The operative, and potentially devastating, proposal is simple: “no merchandise or goods will be allowed of any type regardless of ‘value.’”  Mailing merchandise would be forced into much higher postage categories of First Class, Priority, or Parcel Select, essentially ending premium programs.
