                                                                     SJR 11

          1)Urges the Congress to require the U.S. Postal Service to  
            restore recent cuts in postal service and to oppose further  
            service reductions.


          2)Urges the Secretary of State to publicly oppose changes in the  
            USPS that would negatively impact the rights of California  
            Voters who use a vote-by-mail ballot.


          FISCAL EFFECT:


          Negligible fiscal impact.


          COMMENTS:


          Purpose. This measure, sponsored by the California State  
          Association of Letter Carriers, addresses recent actions by the  
          USPS that have resulted in closures of distribution centers,  
          losses of jobs and degradation in the quality of postal service.
