WASHINGTON, D.C. — Tomorrow, Ranking Member Elijah E. Cummings and Congressman Stephen Lynch, Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Federal Workforce, U.S. Postal Service and Labor Policy, will hold a press conference to announce comprehensive legislation to fundamentally change the Postal Service's business model to cut costs and increase revenue.

Their bill, the Innovate to Deliver Act of 2011 (I2D Act), meets the Postal Service's financial challenges by implementing reforms in three core areas: profitability, personnel, and performance. The bill includes provisions to allow the Postal Service to function more like a business and reduce the restrictions that have hindered its ability to respond effectively to a changing market.

The Subcommittee on Federal Workforce, U.S. Postal Service and Labor Policy Business will also hold a business meeting tomorrow to markup postal legislation.
