In the waning hours of the 109th Congress, H.R. 6407 passed the House and Senate early this morning, and will be sent to the White House for signature. President Bush is expected to sign the legislation, meaning that postal reform legislation has been enacted after more than a decade of debate.

Most of the onerous provisions were taken out of the bill. Gone are attempts to control collective bargaining, reduce retirement annuities, increase the retirement age, privatize portions of the Postal Service, and hand the single-piece parcel business and mail handler jobs over to private competitors.
