Vermont Joins 19 States Opposing USPS Strategic Plan

Vermont joined 19 states action before the Postal Regulatory Commission that alleges the USPS “violated 39 U.S.C. § 3661(b) by adopting a ten-year strategic plan that adopts significant and nationwide changes in the nature of postal services without first requesting an advisory opinion” from the PRC.

WASHINGTON, DC — Vermont joined 19 states action before the Postal Regulatory Commission that alleges the USPS “violated 39 U.S.C. § 3661(b) by adopting a ten-year strategic plan that adopts significant and nationwide changes in the nature of postal services without first requesting an advisory opinion” from the PRC.

The complaint states, “The Plan will transform virtually every aspect of the Postal Service, and concomitantly, transform the nature of postal services with nationwide effect. The Plan will create a new operating model; rework how the Postal Service transports mail and other products; overhaul its processing and logistics network; enact slower service standards for First-Class Mail and Periodicals and First-Class Package Services; reconfigure the location of places where customers can obtain postal products and services; and adjust rates, among other changes. Some of the changes detailed in the Plan are already underway.”

The States’ complaint was filed on October 7, 2021. (click to read)
