Season's Greetings

Pushing the Envelope wishes our readers a joyful holiday season and a prosperous New Year. We will take a break this week, but we encourage you to read over the past year's blogs and let us know what you think on any of the wide range of topics we covered in 2016.

We post comments as they come in, even if you have something to say about a blog that we posted years ago. Indeed, many of our older blogs have been getting new comments, generating new threads of discussion.

On September 30, 1996, President Clinton signed the amended Inspector General Act of 1978 to establish a separate enforcement and oversight agency for the Postal Service, moving that responsibility to the newly created and fully independent OIG.
