Notice. AGENCY: emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES ACTION: SUMMARY: Under a 2006 postal reform law, a new approach to implementing rate changes for market dominant postal products, which include First–Class Mail, was adopted. In general, the new approach envisions annual rate adjustments based on changes in a specified Consumer Price Index (CPI). However, the law includes a provision allowing rate changes in excess of CPI under extraordinary or exceptional circumstances, contingent on a Commission determination on certain considerations. The Postal Service is invoking this provision for the first time and, in a filing with the Commission, is seeking an overall percentage increase of about 5.6 percent for market dominant products beginning January 2, 2011. It is also seeking some classification changes. This document provides the public with notice of the Postal Service’s filing, a brief description of the contents, a discussion of the Commission’s role and responsibilities, and an outline of related procedural steps. DATES: Key dates include: 1. July 19, 2010: first technical conference. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:07 Jul 13, 2010 Jkt 220001 2. August 5, 2010: deadline for filing suggested questions to be directed to Postal Service during public hearing. 3. August 10-12: public hearings. 4. Deadline for issuance of Commission determination. See SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section for dates of additional technical conferences (if needed) and deadlines for initial and reply comments. ADDRESSES: Submit comments and other filings electronically via the Commission’s Filing Online system. Those who cannot submit comments and filings electronically should contact the person identified in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section for advice on alternative filing methods. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Stephen L. Sharfman, General Counsel, at http//www.prc.gov or 202–789–6820. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Introduction On July 6, 2010, the Postal Service filed a proposed rate adjustment pursuant to 39 U.S.C. 3622(d)(1)(E) and 39 CFR 3010.60, et seq., of the Commission’s rules.1 The filing seeks ‘‘to increase rates for market dominant products in excess of the otherwise applicable limitations of 39 U.S.C. 3622(b)(1)(A) and 39 CFR 3010.11.’’ Id. at 11. The proposed prices represent an aggregate increase of approximately 5.6 percent and are to be implemented on January 2, 2011. Id. II. Background and Postal Service Filing As part of the comprehensive changes enacted by the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act of 2006 (PAEA), 120 Stat. 3198, Congress has authorized the Postal Service to adjust rates for market–dominant products on the basis of ‘‘extraordinary or exceptional circumstances,’’ provided the Commission determines that ‘‘such adjustment is reasonable and equitable and necessary to enable the Postal Service, under best practices of honest, efficient, and economical management, to maintain and continue the development of postal services of the kind and quality adapted to the needs of the United States.’’2 39 U.S.C. 3622(d)(1)(E). 1 Exigent Request of the United States Postal Service, July 6, 2010 (Exigent Request). 2 Rate adjustments under section 3622(d)(1)(E) for extraordinary or exceptional circumstances are PO 00000 Frm 00084 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 40853 Section 3622(d)(1)(E) also required the Commission to establish procedures that permit exigent rate adjustments to be made on an expedited basis. Id. Commission determinations that a proposed exigent rate adjustment is ‘‘reasonable and equitable and necessary’’ can only be made ‘‘after notice and opportunity for a public hearing and comment, and within 90 days after any request by the Postal Service.’’ Id. On October 29, 2007, the Commission adopted a new subpart E to its part 3010 market dominant product regulations. 39 CFR part 3010, subpart E. Subpart E established ‘‘a functional and flexible framework’’ for exigent rate cases. Order No. 43, at 65–73. Because of the statutory requirement that determinations on proposed exigent rate adjustments be made within 90 days of the date of filing, it was necessary for the Commission to adopt ‘‘streamlined proceedings’’ for exigent rate cases. See id. at 65–66 and 39 CFR 3010.64. On May 7, 2010, the Commission announced that a technical conference would be held on June 16, 2010, to discuss procedures for handling the exigent rate case that the Postmaster General had previously suggested might be filed.3 The Commission viewed the conference as an opportunity to discuss unique procedural considerations and to identify possible solutions to potential issues ‘‘that might otherwise complicate fair and meaningful participation by interested persons.’’ Order No. 456 at 2. In a subsequent order, the Commission solicited topics for discussion at the conference.4 Participants in the June 16 conference discussed a broad spectrum of topics, including, for example, the desirability of technical conferences, the nature and extent of permissible discovery, the manner in which participants would be permitted to submit questions to the Commission for response by the Postal commonly referred to as ‘‘exigent’’ rate adjustments, although the term ‘‘exigent’’ does not appear in the statute. Recognizing that the legal standard for assessing section 3622(d)(1)(E) rate adjustments is the ‘‘extraordinary and exceptional circumstances’’ standard, the Commission shall for convenience refer to rate adjustments proposed under section 3622(d)(1)(E) as ‘‘exigent rate adjustments’’ and to cases containing such rate adjustments as ‘‘exigent rate cases.’’ See also Docket No. RM2007–1, Order Establishing Ratemaking Regulations for Market Dominant and Competitive Products, October 29, 2007, at 66 (Order No. 43). 3 Docket No. PI2010–3, Notice and Order Providing for Technical Conference, May 7, 2010 (Order No. 456) at 1. 4 Docket No. PI2010–3, Proposals for Topics of Discussion During the Technical Conference in Response to Order No. 456, June 9, 2010.
