USPS defaults a second time as legislation stalls

For the second time in as many months, the cash- strapped U.S. Postal Service says it will default on a required payment to fund future postal retirees' health benefits. The announcement comes after the agency similarly missed a $5.5 billion payment last month, and as longterm legislative solutions languish in Congress.

Congress faces continuing resolution, sequestration and postal reform

Lawmakers returned to Washington, D.C., this week with a packed agenda. Topping the list of priorities is hammering out final details of a stopgap spending measure to keep the government running beyond the end of the fiscal year -- Sept. 30. Amid the election-year politicking, the list of unfinished business also includes legislation to restructure the financially ailing U.S. Postal Service and a cybersecurity bill that aims to safeguard the nation's critical infrastructure. Perhaps looming largest of all is what Congress plans to do about automatic, across-the-board cuts, known as sequestration, set to take effect Jan. 2. Failure to avert the cuts could send the country over a "fiscal cliff," budget experts warn.
