Nonprofit Mailers and Some Papers Get Postal Hike Reprieve

October 03, 1985|Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Postage rates for nonprofit mailers and certain newspapers may have to change in mid-November when a government subsidy expires, postal officials said Wednesday in the wake of a delay of such an increase.

The rate hike, ranging from 28% to 41%, had been scheduled to go into effect Tuesday but was delayed by the postmaster general until the Postal Board of Governors could meet.

Board Chairman John R. McKean said that rates for church bulletins, charitable donation appeals and newspapers mailed in-county do not have to be increased at this time because President Reagan signed legislation temporarily continuing subsidies.
