Three governors do not a U.S. Postal Service Board of Governors make, but it's good enough to keep the USPS running until there's a full board. That's the gist of comments from a USPS spokesman and the Federal Register, the federal government's daily newspaper. As of Dec. 8, the board lost its quorum because Congress failed to confirm board nominees. But ahead of time, the board ensured its remaining members would have the powers available to board members who need to keep the postal service running. Effective Nov. 14, the board created a "Temporary Emergency Committee" to "provide for continuity of operations," according to Tuesday's edition of the Federal Register. On Wednesday, Dead Tree Edition published a blog post titled "Legal Trick Means No Postage Increase—For Now."
