News from the GCVCC Legislative Advocacy Committee
The following letter of OPPOSITION was submitted on behalf of the chamber and Desert AdFed for SB 324.
On behalf of the Greater Coachella Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Desert Advertising Federation, we would like to respectively submit our opposition to SB 324. SB 324 duplicates existing services, is unnecessary, and could cause irreparable damage to the California Economy. The U.S. Postal Service is one of the most critical infrastructure components of the U.S. economy and has been essential to the pandemic response. A healthy postal service provides 6-day per week delivery of letters and packages, safe delivery of life saving medications, affordable shipping for ecommerce packages, and supports the marketing mail that millions of small businesses rely on as a low-cost channel to reach local customers.
By restricting access to consumers through marketing mail, SB 324 jeopardizes the already fragile health of the US Postal Service, would result in significant job loss and would be harmful to growing the State economy.
