NRLCA Political Action Committee
    NRLCA Political Action Committee

    The NRLCA-PAC plays a key role in representing our interests on Capitol Hill by supporting key Senators and
    Representatives. NRLCA-PAC financially supports:

    1. Members who are friendly to our positions;
    2. Legislators who serve on committees with jurisdiction over issues important to NRLCA;
    3. Congressional candidates who could support our causes, if elected.

    The money contributed to NRLCA-PAC aids in each Member's election campaign committee. Campaigns, in turn, use
    the money to send mass mailings, purchased TV and radio ads, fund "Get Out The Vote" efforts, and support their
    colleague's campaign efforts.

    Why Give to PAC?

    We are often asked “Why should I give to PAC?” The honest and best answer is that the NRLCA-PAC helps make
    the lives of Rural Letter Carriers better.

    In the past, PAC contributions successfully aided in the defeat of efforts to restrict collective bargaining, made sure
    single piece parcels remained in the market dominant category, and scuttled three anti-labor amendments, one of
    which was a pilot Contract Delivery Services program.

    It is extremely important as the 112th Congress begins, that we continue to support our PAC.  Currently your PAC
    contributions are being used to stop Contract Delivery Services and maintain 6-day delivery.  In addition to their work
    in stopping CDS and maintaining 6-day mail service, our Government Relations team is also continuing to monitor
    other issues of importance to NRLCA members such as Government Pension Offset, Windfall Elimination Provision
    and Premium Conversion.  Your PAC contributions will give us the resources that are needed to effectively educate
    members of Congress on these very important issues.

    With the map for the entire House of Representatives being redrawn and 33 Senate seats on the table, the next
    election cycle has already begun. In order to ensure that our voices are heard from now through November of 2012,
    NRLCA-PAC must begin preparing now. If you are already a PAC member, thank you for your contribution and
    please keep contributing.  If you are not yet a PAC member and would like to be, or would like more information on
    PAC, please feel free to contact your state PAC Chair.
