Domtar continues to champion reliable, affordable mail service for all U.S. residents. We are proud to partner with Keep US Posted in advocacy efforts to strengthen the U.S. Postal Service and ensure strong service throughout the country without excessive postal rate hikes. Keep US Posted is an alliance consisting of consumer interests, industry groups, newspapers, nonprofits and businesses. The group is working to engage Americans to call for postal policy that preserves essential services, effectively and efficiently. Advocates are immediately concerned about planned postal rate hikes, particularly in light of the financial relief the Postal Service received in the recently passed postal service reform legislation. Executive director Kevin Yoder, a former congressman from Kansas, worked on postal issues during four terms in the U.S. House of Representatives.
