The conference report stripped from the House-passed version of the budget resolution (House Concurrent Resolution 27) specific policy recommendations that would have had a devastating  impact on NAPUS members. Nevertheless, the legislative landscape is still littered with landmines that could be harmful to the postal and federal community.
