Gary Phillips, AUSPL President

 

May 2016

Fellow Members:

On May 5th, 2016, the AUSPL board of directors elected me to succeed Morgan Wolaver as AUSPL’s next president.  I have been privileged to serve with Morgan as Vice President for the past several years and am grateful to Morgan for his many accomplishments in advancing AUSPL’s agenda.  And he is not quite finished yet.  Morgan will remain on the board of directors and has agreed to continue as “director of legislative affairs”.  This ensures complete continuity in AUSPL’s effort to influence congress on comprehensive postal reform legislation.  Thank you Morgan for your leadership as AUSPL’s president; and for your willingness to continue to serve on AUSPL’s board and as its advocate in Washington.

It is our mission to be sure that every congressman and postal service executive knows that our network of buildings is critical to affordable, universal service to all Americans.  You can help by; writing to or visiting your Congressman, contributing to the AUSPL PAC, and attending AUSPL Hill Day events in Washington.

H.R. 5714 – The Postal Service Reform Act of 2016

 

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee approved H.R. 5714 by voice vote on July 12, 2016.  The Committee has requested that the Congressional Budget Office determine the cost to implement this legislation and to have that estimate available when the House reconvenes in September.  This cost estimate will have a major impact on the legislation’s future consideration during the remainder of this 114th Congress.

 

The legislation seeks to put the United States Postal Service on a firmer financial foundation by refinancing USPS prefunding payments to the federal government for the retirement and health care benefits of postal employees; requiring that postal retirees use Medicare as their primary health carrier; allows USPS to raise first class mail rates by 1 cent to make up for the rate decrease in April; and gives the Postal Rate Commission the ability to adjust other postal rates.
