The US Postal Assistance (USPS; otherwise called the Mailing station, U.S. Mail, or Postal Assistance) is an autonomous organization of the presidential part of the US central government answerable for offering postal support in the US, including its separate regions and related states. It is one of only a handful few government organizations expressly approved by the US Constitution.
The USPS follows its underlying foundations to 1775 during the Second Mainland Congress, when Benjamin Franklin was designated the principal postmaster general; he likewise served a comparable situation for the settlements of the Realm of Extraordinary England. The Mail center Office was made in 1792 with the entry of the Postal Assistance Act. It was raised to a bureau level division in 1872, and was changed by the Postal Revamping Demonstration of 1970 into the US Postal Assistance as an autonomous office. Since the mid 1980s, many direct duty sponsorships to the USPS (except for endowments for costs related with debilitated and abroad electors) have been decreased or killed.
