​​NRECA filed comments with the Postal Regulatory Commission in opposition to the USPS's recent filing to increase rates for, among other classes, First-Class postage and Periodicals. In our comments, we point out that, if approved, the rate increases would have a negative impact on rural America, that rural consumers in many cases have no other options than the Postal Service to receive important information from their electric cooperative, and that the Postal Service is ignoring the statutory rate cap of increases to the Consumer Price Index.​
