Free Speech Coalition Initial Comments on Cooperative Mail Rule

Michael Harless Administrative Law, Postal Law

On behalf of the Free Speech Coalition, we filed Initial Comments in Postal Regulatory Commission Docket No. PI2008 4 requesting that the Commission make no change to the cooperative mail rule (CMR) in the Postal Service’s regulations that was revised by the Postal Service in 2003. The Commission is reviewing the CMR pursuant to the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act, Pub. L. 109 435, Section 711. FSC supports the Postal Service’s 2003 change to the CMR that created a fundraising exception which enables nonprofits to use nonprofit Standard Mail postage rates without unnecessary burdens imposed by the Postal Service.
