Postmaster General Frank, head of the government agency not

responsible for the 29 cent stamp, spoke on the changes occurring in

the U.S. Postal Service to the National Press Club. Postmaster

General Frank discussed the past twenty years of the U.S. Postal

Service following the Postal Reorganizational Act of 1970 which made

the postal service an independent government agency. He pointed out

that the cost of stamps in constant dollars has not changed in the

past twenty years, and went on to discuss the changes in

organization, infrastructure and automation that have improved the

performance of the U.S. Postal Service. The U.S. Postal Service, the

postmaster general noted, is more efficient than its foreign

competitors, while still maintaining equal service for all Americans

at equal rates. He argued in favor of allowing the postal service to

invest in securities in order to raise revenues for the agency. After his presentation he responded to questions submitted by audience members. close
