Fair Postal Policy, the First Amendment and Strong Newspapers!

APW represents clients with concerns about affordable mail service, timely delivery and fair competition. It works with National Newspaper Association on laws and policies for delivery of community newspapers to readers across America.

APW believes in a strong US Postal Service that provides universal service to all areas of America.

APW and its clients have successfully maintained preferred postage rates for small newspapers intended to permit them to purchase only the delivery parts of the service that they need. Currently, it is engaged in a campaign to guarantee that USPS does not use its monopoly status and government privileges to favor large direct mail companies over local newspapers.

APW  believes a critical pillar of transparency in government is public notices, required of governments and third parties that exercise public powers. Public notices should be published in newspapers, where they will be noticed, and not diverted to obscure and often inaccessible government websites.
