Lexington’s Paul Steidler was quoted in a National Review article discussing the language in Section 202 of the Postal Service Reform Act of 2021. The article contends the provision will hide significant costs related to the shipping of packages, therefore making proper management decisions harder to gauge. Steidler pointed out that Section 202 would run counter to the USPS’s plans for stand-alone package annexes and would reduce transparency.
He also attributed the push for the language to special interests. “Package-only delivery routes would be counter to this proposed law. USPS’s plans to open 45 package-only annexes at the holiday season and avoid last year’s bottlenecks would similarly be prohibited. The language, while embraced by and benefitting package-shipping special interests, is unnecessary and harmful,” said Steidler.
