Jul 23, 2003, 12:00 AM
The Magazine Publishers of America has released a statement hailing recommendations made by the President's Commission on the United States Postal Service. Among the commission's proposals at its meeting yesterday were to increase automation and establish a system to track mail for security purposes. At a hearing last week, the commission recommended that the postal service should be overhauled to improve efficiency and that more services should be outsourced to the private sector. "The Magazine Publishers of America applauds the effort and foresight of the President's postal commission in making strong recommendations for much-needed change in the nation's postal system," MPA president and chief executive officer Nina Link wrote in the statement. "The commission has laid the groundwork for the kind of postal reform that would ensure the efficiency, affordability, strength and stability of the system for decades to come."
