One more Postal Service post: The House Oversight and Government Reform committee has (finally) scheduled a markup hearing for H.R. 22, the bill that would give the Postal Service some relief from its retiree health benefit obligations.
Don’t get too excited, though: This is actually just a subcommittee markup. The bill has a long way to go before it becomes law.
The bill was introduced in January and it’s been stuck in committee limbo almost ever since. The Postal Service says it can’t pay all its year-end bills if H.R. 22 doesn’t pass.
