Postal Service on the Edge

ARCHIVES

Things are getting serious for the Postal Service, Ed O'Keefe notes today.

With Congress deciding not to provide $4 billion in cash relief to USPS in the stopgap funding measure that took shape Tuesday, the agency faces a tough decision: whether or not it can afford to make a $5.5 billion payment to prefund retiree health benefits on time. Either way, USPS could be looking at deep cuts in operational costs--including furloughs of postal workers that could affect mail delivery.

 

Tom Shoop is vice president and editor in chief at Government Executive Media Group, where he oversees both print and online editorial operations. He started as associate editor of Government Executive magazine in 1989; launched the company’s flagship website, GovExec.com, in 1996; and was named editor in chief in 2007.
