(b)The Postal Service shall provide
The changes to this paragraph give the Postal Service more flexibility in closing post offices. Most importantly it allows the Postal Service to close a retail location if it is losing money. The amendment removes any special protection that rural, Postal Service staffed, Post Offices may have in current law.
It may also give the Postal Service more flexibility in providing delivery services as postal services may describe everything from the sale of postage to the delivery of a a mail or parcel. It may also give the Postal Service some flexibility in defining service standards for rural communites.
