The Direct Marketing Association recently took to task editorial writers at The Washington Post for backing postal legislation introduced by Reps. Issa and Ross. Why? While focused on addressing USPS financial woes, the Washington pundits ignored the bill's potentially devastating blow for non-profit mailers. The DMA warns that the proposed legislation would decrease the non-profit preferred rate differential, causing a dramatic rise in postal rates for charities. Concerned fundraisers should contact Jerry Cerasale, DMA senior vice president of governmental affairs, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
