Notice and order. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: This document establishes a formal docket to consider extending the provisional Repositionable Notes (RPN) service by one year. Shortly before the expiration date, the Postal Service filed a request seeking to maintain the status quo to allow time to determine how RPNs may be affected by the recent implementation of the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act (PAEA). This document describes the requested change and identifies several initial procedural steps, including authorization of settlement negotiations. DATES: April 20, 2007: Deadline for intervention, responses to request for consideration under rule 69, comments on suspension of this docket, answers to Conditional Motion for Waiver, and comments on appropriateness of authorizing settlement procedures. ADDRESSES: Submit comments electronically via the Commission’s Filing Online system at http:// www.prc.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Stephen L. Sharfman, General Counsel, 202–789–6820 and stephen.sharfman@prc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulatory History 71 FR 3894 (January 24, 2006). I. Background Under the terms of the Domestic Mail Classification Schedule (DMCS), provisional Repositionable Notes (RPN) service expires April 3, 2007, barring PO 00000 Frm 00113 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 19059 the Service’s filing of a request to continue to test the service or to make it a permanent offering. See DMCS 221.336(a). Notice is hereby given that on April 2, 2007, the Postal Service filed with the Commission a Request, along with related pleadings, that tolls the scheduled expiration date by seeking establishment of a docket to consider a change which would extend expiration by one year, to April 2, 2008.1 The instant Request was filed pursuant to section 3623 of the Postal Reorganization Act, 39 U.S.C. 101 et seq. The Request identifies with specificity the requested change in the expiration date in affected DMCS classification provisions and in the associated rates specified in certain rate schedules. Related concurrent filings include the Direct Testimony of Broderick A. Parr (USPS–T–1); a separate Notice addressing, among other things, the Service’s interest in settlement; and a pleading including a Conditional Motion for Waiver.2 The Service also suggests, in the alternative, that suspension of the docket might be appropriate. Request at 1–2. The rationale for this suggestion is the Service’s belief that it might be advisable to wait until PAEA implementation matures sufficiently to illuminate other options for moving forward or until the Service files another request involving RPNs. Id. at 2. The Service asserts that the requested change conforms with the criteria of 39 U.S.C. 3623(c), and will further the general policies of efficient postal operations and reasonable rates and fees enunciated in the Postal Reorganization Act. Id. It states the requested change is intended to maintain status quo ante and avoid disruption for mailers currently using RPN service and those that may be considering such use. II. Application of Expedited Rules Rationale for filing under rules for expedited minor classification cases. The Postal Service denominates its request as a minor classification change, 1 Request of the United States Postal Service for a Recommended Decision on Change of Expiration Date for Provisional Repositionable Notes Classifications and Rates, April 2, 2007 (Request). The Request includes three attachments. Attachment A consists of the Service’s proposed changes in the DMCS. Attachment B is an index of direct testimony. Attachment C is a statement of compliance with Commission rules 64, 69 and 69a. 2 Notice of Filing of Request of the United States Postal Service for a Recommended Decision on Change of Expiration Date for Provisional Repositionable Notes Classifications and Rates (Notice) and Statement of the United States Postal Service Concerning Compliance with Filing Requirements and Conditional Motion for Waiver (Conditional Motion for Waiver), both filed April 2, 2007.
