Postal Increase To
Cost State $8 Million
AUSTIN -State Comptroller Bob
Bullock said Friday that this
week's hike in postal rates will cost
the state an additional $8 6 million
during the current budget
"When the cost of stamps goes
up, housekeeping costs to the state
go up just like they do for everyone
else," Bullock said.
He said that more than $2.7
million in additional postage will be
needed to cover state postage cost
through the end of the fiscal year
in August and about $5.9 million
will be needed for additonal costs
next fiscal year
The new postal rates will in-
crease the state's first-class costs
by 13.6 percent, first class pre sort
costs by 16.7 percent and third
class costs by about 24 percent
The overall cost to the state
should average about 17 Dercent
during the next 17 months
"The cost of doing business for
the state has just gone up and there
won't be any relief from these
postage increases," Bullock said.
He said that during fiscal 1987
the state spent about $35 million on
The state's eleven largest agen-
cies account for about 65 percent of
the postage costs or about $23
million a year
