    does anybody know if this passed? if it did, then we can legally send beer through the mail and will make trades much cheaper.


    21st CENTURY POSTAL SERVICE ACT OF 2011
    On November 9, 2011, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee held a markup of S. 1789, the 21st Century Postal Service Act of 2011. S. 1789 is a bipartisan bill introduced on November 2, 2011, and provides for reform on a variety of issues. The Committee voted to report S.1789, as amended, favorably to the Senate by a margin of 9-1. The bill now moves to the full Senate for consideration. S. 1789:


    • Includes other provisions such as requiring an arbitrator to consider the financial condition of the Postal Service when making decisions on collective bargaining agreements, creating service standards for retail access, consolidating door delivery points to curbside, sidewalk or centralized delivery, permitting the Postal Service to offer new non-postal services, and allowing for the mailing of wine and beer.

    looks like not, though it's hard to say if this is up to date info, I think they need to have another bill passed in order to edit the website.
