The USPS Board of Governors has posted a notice of a closed meeting Wednesday, November 16 to discuss, and presumably, take action on the rate increase approved by the Postal Rate Commission. Under the law, the BOG members appointed by the President (i.e. not including the PMG and his Deputy) vote to approve, allow under protest, reject, or modify the PRC decision. The entire Board then decides on the effective dates for the rate changes.
The Board will also consider personnel and strategic issues, and review and approval of the Service's year end financial statements.
