This week, Congressman Darrel Issa (Calif) introduced legislation entitled The Postal Reform Act of 2011 that would establish two new panels’ charged with broad oversight of the Postal Service.

A proposed part of the postal reform is moving the nonprofit discount from 40 percent to 10 percent.

How will this affect your organization?

Your current (est.) postal rate $0.18 x fill-in your postal volume = $_
Proposed postal rate $0.27 x fill-in your postal volume = $_
Difference (note, be sure to put in red) $_

Do you really think they will do this?

The proposed loss for the USPS this fiscal year is projected to be $8.3 billion on top of losing $8.5 billion last year.
