The U.S. Postal Service, on the brink of bankruptcy, is facing two key deadlines in the coming weeks that could define its solvency and future ability to deliver the nation's mail.
The U.S. Postal Service says it is working with small publishers to make sure they understand a new set of mailing rules and rates that went into effect a month ago.
"Our priorities for payments into the new fiscal year will be to make sure that employees and suppliers are paid to keep the mail moving," Mr. Partenheimer said.
The Postal Service says that "absent some extraordinary circumstance," it will either make the full payment on time "or at least be able to provide enough to keep [the Labor Department] from defaulting on their obligation," spokesman David Partenheimer said.
