Postal reform update
Yesterday, the Congressional Budget Office issued its report on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee's bipartisan postal reform bill. "CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 756 would reduce direct spending by about $6 billion over the 2017-2027 period; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures apply. Enacting H.R. 756 would not affect revenues." This appears to the FEHBlog to be the green light for Congress to continue pursuing enactment of this law which would create a separate Postal Service Health Benefits Program within the FEHBP.
