Trump's Postal Task Force Report Receives Tepid Response From Key Players
December 06, 2018 / Eric Katz
The Trump administration’s long-anticipated and significantly delayed task force recommendations for saving the U.S. Postal Service were more moderate than some of its sharpest critics had anticipated, but many in the mailing community wasted no time in pointing to what they saw as flaws in the report. Absent from the findings, released on Tuesday after President Trump created the task force by executive order earlier this year, were any broad calls for privatization or dramatic changes to the agency’s obligation to deliver mail to every address in the United States. Still, large-scale mailers, labor unions representing USPS employees and lawmakers took issue with many of the recommendations and declined to endorse the report overall.
