USPS: Bulk mail cost is too low

I have received a reply for my records request from the Tacoma School District regarding the cost of the 2013 Spotlight newsletter. I was shocked to find out the bulk rate for mailing 96,241 oversized, eight-page brochures was only 7 cents each.

If a private citizen were to mail something of that size and weight, the cost would be substantially more. It’s time for the U.S. Postal Service to re-evaluate bulk mailing fees to help balance its budget
