At the quarterly public meeting of the Postal Regulatory Commission (Commission), the Commission outlined its plans for the upcoming review of the existing ratemaking system. The Commission is notifying the public so that all interested parties may prepare to fully participate in the review that will start after Dec. 20, 2016.
On Dec. 20, 2006, the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act (PAEA) was signed into law and created a modern system of regulating rates and classes for Market Dominant products. The PAEA also mandated that the Commission review this system 10 years later to determine if it is achieving the objectives established by Congress. Dec. 20, 2016 is the 10-year anniversary of the PAEA, and also will mark the beginning of the Commission’s required review of the system of regulation established by 39 U.S.C. § 3622.
Although additional specific information will be provided by the Commission in its December Order, the Commission offers the following preliminary information:
December 20, 2016 — Commission issues Order beginning the review. The Order will describe the approximate structure and timeframe within which the Commission will complete its review, as well as define the opportunities for public comment within the review
Early Spring 2017 — Deadline for comments to be submitted
Early Autumn 2017 — Commission issues Order including its findings and, if necessary, preparatory rule-making information for any changes to the system
The Commission will provide updates to the public of the review process through its website, www.prc.gov.
