Comments:Federal Trade Commission 1 July 2007 SUBJECT: USPS Study, Project P071200 Pursuant to Federal Register/ Vol. 72, No. 83/ Tuesday, May 1, 2007, July 2, 2007 deadline for comments. I submit comments to the questions asked by the FTC in regards to the costs incurred by United States Postal Service in following the Laws that created it, and give it the authority to conduct it’s Public Service. Directorate for Financial, Fiscal and Enterprise Affairs Committee on Competition Law and Policy; Working Party No. 2 on Competition and Regulation, 10 Feb 1999 – lists 43 laws that the Postal Service must follow and their impact. Comptroller General Report #090111 estimated that the Postal Service incurs costs of $1.1 billion dollars in1974 following the provisions of laws and regulations that it must follow. While it is of value to list all the Laws and the costs associated with them, I believe that it would be of more value to list some of the Laws that the Postal Service has failed to follow and the cost to the American Public for the failure.
