$340 Million Lavish Government Conference Spending Amid Budget Crisis
Members of Congress are asking the USPS to justify its spending on an upcoming industry conference as it continues to look for ways to trim costs. The Postal Service cites revenue benefits from the face-to-face meeting.
Several lawmakers have requested a detailed justification for the U.S. Postal Service’s participation in a major industry conference next month, according to various news reports.
The Postal Service will spend about $2.2 million to send 400 executives, including Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe, to the four-day National Postal Forum March 17-20 in San Francisco, a local television station reported last week.
